Skipper – (our Rhodesian Ridgeback) killed the last reamaining chick. It got out of the chicken run and Skipper wanted too play with it. But we have learned a lot about rearing chicks from this excercise.

Lesson no 1 – prompt hen into broodiness by filling the nest with pre-collected eggs.
lesson no 2 – keep the chicks with their mother in a cat and rooster proof cage until the chicks are big enough to defend themselves.
lesson no 3. make sure the chicken run is fenced such that the chicks cannot get out (once they are out of the cat and rooster proof cage)
We continue.
