This is actually such a great thread. I have 3 dogs and a cat. All indoor companions. The dogs have a fenced in back yard they pop in and out of and that is where I plan on putting the coop. (Preparing for chickens! Yay!) However, until I know that the chickens would be safe there will be a temporary divider between the coop/run area and the rest of the yard. So happy to see that they can get along!
