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

I wouldn't.  I believe dogs and chickens should never meet, based on all the NEW members reporting  chicken massacres by their own dogs.  You never hear of a chicken killing a dog,   but dogs are among their top predators (owners dog and neighbor dogs running loose).
