    All of my chickens got killed

    I’m so disappointed and sad and angry. My neighbors dogs climbed our 6 foot fencing that’s around our whole yard, got past our electric fencing somehow and into our chicken run and killed every single one of our chickens except for one. I don’t even know how they got into my chicken run. I’m...

    What is an absolute minimum processing for raw dog feeding?

    I will have about 60 birds to process in near future. They will be 3-week old cockerels and 2.5 year old hens - all leghorns and their crosses . Last time I have processed 20 for human food it took too many hours for the meat collected, and even when skinning not plucking. We buy chicken...

    Calling all dog experts! Hoping to get a Labradoodle, any information to be aware of, and do you recommend them?

    I may not be able to get one, but I am hoping to get a Labradoodle. I want a dog that is around 40-60 lbs, and I'm slightly allergic to dogs so I want one that is at least mostly hypoallergenic. I also have some mental health issues, so I'm hoping I could get it trained to be an ESA. So now for...

    What dogs are Good with Chickens

    So I’m in the market for a dog that won’t eat my chickens, I’ve been looking at livestock protectors but they are pretty pricey when you get into the larger purebreds. I’ve been looking at mixes like Shollies and purebreds like Akbash but I don’t know what’s the right fit. The chickens have a...

    Chicken-Safe Dogs for Rats? Your experience?

    This is very much a noobie question, and I'm just looking for general thoughts and opinions. We've got a rat infestation on the property and poison is not an option (yes, we know about the other options). We've been discussing getting a dog, but I've read so many horror stories of dogs going...

    Dog gnawing on pet duck

    I’m so upset. We have three hen ducks. Two are very docile, tame bantams. One was taken by a hawk so I was keeping the dogs w the ducks free roaming during the day so hawks wouldn’t be a threat. Everything has been going fine but my dog started chasing our friendliest duck. He would sort of hold...

    My Dog Is Infested With Ticks!

    We live in a suburban environment and somehow my Schnauzer always gets tick every year. We went on a walk four day ago and he loves walking straight through the thickest branchiest bush and the longest grass he can find. I found a tick in my bed. My sister found a tick crawling up her arm. We...

    Neighbors' Pesky Dogs and Invisible Fence

    I'm not sure if this is the right forum to post this, but I'm hoping to reach people who have some insights on aggressive neighborhood dogs. First of all, I live in the sticks. It's all country out here--winding, rural roads, tons of livestock and dogs (usually fenced in, thankfully). The...

    It's raining cats and dogs...

    This should probably have been posted in the rambling thread but... it does involve predators. The stuff that's happened in the last couple of months is just 😤 and I shattered my screen so getting back on here for advice took a while... Anyway! Just this afternoon: 2 separate incidents...
