    Hi! I'm Judi, 70 yr old "mother" of 43 hens and 2 roosters....Easter Eggers, Olive Eggers, Ameraucanas, Cochins, Silkies, Buff Orpingtons, Polish, Silverlaced Wyandottes, Wellsummers, Rhode Island Amber, Black Copper Marans and probably others I can't think of. Brandy (3/4 Anatolian Shepherd 1/4 Great Pyrenees) is my dedicated chicken guard dog. Samson (German Shepherd) was the dedicated chicken-eater till the E-collar taught him better. Two cats and a husband round out the family. I love to garden and meet challenges of landscaping around chickens. First chickens ever....5 years ago....still on the learning curve!

    Greetings from Kansas, Judi, and [​IMG]! Great to have you in our poultry community! Your dog sounds like he would be a great guard dog indeed - sounds like he could hold his own against nearly any predator out there!! Best wishes to you and your flock!!

    G’Day from down under Judi [​IMG] Welcome and Happy New Year!

    I hope you enjoy BYC. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
