    My chickens are in with my mules all the time. The mules used to try and stomp the chickens, but have since given up. Chickens don't seem to run in a predictable direction and the mules quit trying to guess which way they were headed. [​IMG]

    I have done it a hundred times. But my mule will want to chase them sometimes. When he starts running around (usually when a storm moves in) all the animals head for cover. Very funny.
