Hello there! Long time lurker, don't post very often. Have 21 chickens on our suburban 14 acres, in good weather our chickens have free range of yard, garden, orchard, etc. Anyone have a free range flock compatible with a pet dog? Adopted the sweetest 1 yr. old rescue dog for trial period, one of the chickens got INTO his fenced acre, which he promptly retrieved and brought back to house. Chicken was fine, but we're freaking out about him bugging the chickens. Friends say they have dogs that don't bother their chickens, but their chickens are not out and about as much as ours are. Only had the dog 3 days, was introducing him to the chores and animals on a lead when this happened. Has his own area, but eventually our goal was to be able to have him off lead as we did chores. Anyone have any success stories with your dogs? Assume we'll have to get a puppy and raise with the chickens if we want a dog. Right now the doggie is headed back on Tuesday unless we can come up with some ideas. Thanks for your help! Snows.
