Haha! BBQJOE you're too funny. To be honest I'm not worried about my landlord's jacks. They are interested in the chickens but don't seem at all excited or aggressive about them. They just kind of cock their heads at them and like to chime in howling when one of the girls starts singing the egg song I'm surprised your dog is so special if she's half jack. They are usually very intelligent!
I'm from Maine Linda :) I'm pretty sure most people in the New England area say mum, but I can't be certain! I think I'll do like you did and just bring Ozzy in every day, even try putting them on him like you did, until the little ones are big and then let them go and just cross my fingers!
