Okay, I know this website is about exclusively chicken and poultry, so I'll start off with one of my biggest concerns. my NH red, Milly will go into (what I call) "Mommy mode" whenn she's about to lay. then she'll stay in the nesting box, and sit on the egg, occasionally turning it (which is the cutest thing on the planet, but still concerning). I just thought this was normal behavior until I went to collect the eggs, and my Ameraucauna, Clucky caught me taking them, jumped into the nesting box, and gave me her "why would you do this to me" stare until she guilt-tripped me into putting them back, and decided to have my sister get them in a few hours. On my way back into the house, I looked into the coop window, and saw Clucky's fluffy butt sticking out of the nesting box. she had jumped up, and (I think) was trying to organize them to sit on. We don't have a roo, so I don't know whether or not this is normal... Second problem... I have a border collie who, every time he goes near the coop, he starts sniffing around fro poop, and when he finds it... well, i manage to hold him back, and say "no", but he won't listen. WHAT DO I DO????
