I've searched and cannot seem to find other posts on this topic. We have 3 dogs who free feed and five laying hens. Everyone gets along famously.
The chickens free range and I've noticed lately that they REALLY like to come on the deck and steal the dogs' food. We have a bunch of woodpeckers
who do the same thing. Is this because most dog food has cornmeal in it? We feed the "weight control" variety of pedigree (one older dog is on a diet).
Will this hurt the chickens or affect their laying?
Thanks so much!!
