Trouble with Dogs and Chickens
My only dilemma I have with my little dogs is they chase my chickens. I know it's in their nature but it's causing a major problem. We love our chickens and the eggs. The black little dog is eating their eggs and I also caught him the other night hurting one of the big chickens. He was on top of her biting her really bad. She's missing feathers and we just nursed her back to health. It's soooo sad. I really want my chickens to walk around the yard but now we might have to keep part of the yard separated to keep the animals apart. Phooey. We loved having our chickens walk right up to our patio door. Does anyone have any ideas about dogs and chickens?
I wish there was a way to train my dogs to not chase my chickens. I mean, it is in their nature so I can't be upset about it. My really big Great Dane gets along with them fine. Either that or he's too lazy to chase them. LOL.
Wanna see a chicken that doesn't mind laying on her back and chillin'? Heh heh. Here you go. Goodnight chicken.
