Oh *I* don't name the chickens... I have 8 and 11yr old girls and the chickens are basically their pets with a lovely byproduct of eggs.
I told the boarder that her dog has to be leashed at all times. Hubby is having a chat with the neighbor about her dogs running loose and chasing calves. Only 1 of the calves is mine, the other 4 are boarded here, I cannot afford to have a boarder lose calves and I'm sure it's not good for their Mom's who have already been re-bred, to be frantically chasing after their babies either.
I really don't want to harm anyone's pet but my entire property is adequately fenced, so I am completely within my rights to dispatch of animals harassing my livestock. In addition to chickens and cows, we have horses, turkeys, goats and piglets. None of which I am willing to lose.

I am so glad for your family that after the crisis everyone survived.
Oh I get it.... trust me, I felt really dumb as I was screaming across the pasture "Hey kids, I found Fluffy Mc Fluffers!" Half the time, I get all the names wrong and get yelled at. Only chicken I really "knew" was the original Brownie and only because for whatever reason, she loved me. Dumb chicken followed me all over tarnation and INSISTED on riding around on the ATV with me. She was also the first one to become Coyote dinner.
