    My Geese and Dog Are Aggressive to Each Other

But my geese will still go up to him and try to pick a fight, I think they even have struck out at him. He barely wants to go outside anymore. He pooped in...

    Guess the Mix!!

    Post pictures of your mixed breed dogs and I (and/or others) can try to guess them. :D I’m pretty good with dog breeds so I think I’m usually pretty good at these things and I like guessing haha If you have a tricky purebred I could try to guess too.

    Putting dog hair in nests to act as a deterrent

    Hey guys! I've been seeing stuff about this lately, and I was wondering if anyone has tried it? Supposedly putting dog hair in your nests can ward off predetors because they hate the smell. Does anyone know if this works? :)

    Hello from Heart4Chicks

    It was my Grandpa who started me down the road with a love for chickens. When I was five years old, he gave me my own little Bantam flock. However, along came grown-up life and for many years the thought of owning chickens did not cross my mind. Then early Spring last year I happened to be in...
