Training livestock guardian dogs sounds like a really unique and fun job! Do you have any chickens or other poultry?

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

That's an awesome looking dog in your avatar! Don't pay any attention to CTKen's donkey comment...he's probably enjoying his sundown sipper about now, lol.

LOL he is about the size of a mini donkey :) !

I just posted another thread about my chicken flock "experience" being shut down due to massive Starling invasion.

Wanting to get some hens again.  I have had great success with my dogs guarding my flock of 50 or so layers when they

were here.  I see others on this board have had similar success with LGDs guarding their flocks from predators.

That makes me happy!  Unfortunately the dogs had no impact on the Starlings.  But they do chase off ravens, crows

and hawks.  But I like the hawks to be around to get the Starlings….Catch 22 of sorts!
