Glad you could join the flock! Congratulations on getting your chicken adventures underway
Chickens are a fantastic hobby and are something the whole family can enjoy together as you have found out. I'm sorry to read your dig is not enjoying them as much as you all are. I would advise that you don't leave the dog near them unsupervised and your flock is safe from the dog too. I'm lucky that my dogs are good with the birds but my mother has had terrible trouble with hers. He just does not like them at all. I'm afraid it's ended up a sad situation as he managed to kill one and attack another when they thought he was locked away. Just double check everytime where the dog is.
Wishing you the very best of luck in the future. Be sure to ask any questions that you may have, everyone here to help and very friendly.
Enjoy BYC and all the chicken chat
