Do you let your dogs and chicken hang out together? Today was the first day that the girls got to spend the whole day outside. The coop was serviceable, no doors, windows, or nest boxes yet, but it was safe. I'm a little leery of letting the chickens out in the yard with the dogs out. Well... I'm nervous about them just being out in the yard period. They are almost 6 weeks old and I know I should "cut the cord" and put them outside but they're just babies!! When do you let your chickens out to free range. Oh... and I'm right smack in the middle of town!
