Just to be clear. My property is fenced for livestock. Horses, cows. The neighbors property is fully fenced to keep their goats contained. It's solely the dumb A-holes' pack of dogs that is the issue.

There are no leash laws here. There is no "pound" and no animal control. I called the sheriff and they said if me or my livestock/pets are threatened, I can shoot, shovel and shut up! Of course they don't encourage that.

Thankfully, I don't think I will have to resort to that.

I wonder if I got a donkey ff that would take care of the dog issue.

Still going to spend money for an damn automatic gate...

One of the humans over there has been trying, since I moved in, to do some amateur dog training.

I got home, late, tonight. My man, said she, whoever "she" is, was out there when he was home, yet, trying again. They only try to fix the problem when they see us coming down the road.

When I spoke with the Sheriff's office, it was suggested that I get a Dazzer?

Suggestions and thoughts on this topic?

I am, merely, trying to stay out of court.

I forgot to say, a Dazzer will only work if someone is there to push a button.

The rest of the day, everyone has free Reign!

Thanks! You are just as pesky as Beaumont! I forgot that, too, even though you gave me fair warning. I am rehearsing my mad dash to town to pick up last minute chicken supplies, hit the grocery store and get my girls!

Lily's little feelings might be hurt for a couple of days. Too tempting! After all, they taste like chicken!

They are in transit and I am going bonkers!

I have never used a thermometer and have been raising chicks for about 25 years. For the last 15 yrs I have used a big plywood crate that one of my dogs came over here from Australia in. I hang a heat lamp and then check to see whether they cluster right under it (too high), or if they spread out to the far corners (too low) over a 12 hr period and then adjust accordingly - raise, lower etc. The crate is in the hay barn which isn't heated.

This is how I am playing the game, Vivienne!

The girls look happy to me!

It is hilarious when one of them falls asleep standing up and then another knocks her over in a mad dash to get somewhere...

There is no where to go. What do they think is on the other side of the trough?

LOL

Reminds me of a joke!

Why did the chick cross the trough?

LOL

Oh! To knock the dozing one over!

And, Princess Lily's feelings are hurt. She is suddenly fascinated by the door she isn't allowed to go through.

I am being a worry wart. I know.

But, he's out of town and then I will go to meet him. And then when we come back, game on! Everything has to be good to go! EVERY thing.

Thanks for listening...

I'm sorry I'm of no help on how to keep the dogs off of your property and away from your dog, but I feel your worry, stress and frustration. How irritating this must be!! Such careless, clueless neighbors.

Is there a way you could fire a warning shot in the air when they are around? Not at the dogs, but just near and loud enough them so that they get spooked? Of course this wouldn't work if you weren't actually at home, only when you caught them in the act. I'm still trying to think of ways to trick the neighbor dogs somehow.... Could you set traps? And then return the said caught dog to the owners with a 'if I catch another one...' kind of talk?

I'm hoping you can find a solution to this! At least they were apologetic, so it's not like they don't know it happens.

You shouldnít have let those old ladies knit those sweaters for your chicks. If you allowed nudity in your chicken brooder, the shock value of the occasional underwear exposure would not be a cause for concern.

For those of you who havenít been following our discussions of the perils and traumas of chicken raising which has stretched across multiple threads this is a reference to this article Sweaters for chickens: Retirees knit clothes for chilly poultry | Fox News

Right now, everything has been peaceful.

They know, they are on notice.

They sometimes get lazy and let a puppy roam.

Sorry, there is no reason to have that many dogs!

If those dogs come on my property and kill my chickens, well...

We have already popped them with a BB gun.

I came unglued when Alan came home and the neighbor's wayward dogs started acting up again!

I was outside and started yelling loud enough for the city of Guthrie to hear me. "Get your damn dogs under control!" Haven't seen one of the dogs since.

Alan laughed at me as he was getting out of his truck. Which pissed me off, even more.
