I saw the tread asking about Cairn terriers and chickens. I have a 14 year old Cairn (and a toy poodle) and just got some baby chicks. I have cat and Raccoon visitors so I am hoping the Cairn will continue it's anti cat and raccoon sentiment and keep them away from the chickens. I intend to slowly introduce them to the chickens while they are growing and will let you know how that works out. I'm expecting more problems with the poodle than the terrier as the poodle barks every time she hears a sudden noise. I'll keep you posted.
