    So... had to put my baby chicks in the secure pen. This kinda left the big chickens homeless. They just went right around the corner and went to sleep in the doghouse. The dog also went to sleep in the doghouse! They are just fine with the situation it seems. Chickens are gonna have to move of course. Can't have my dog sleeping in chicken poo. But for a couple of days it has been tooooo funny! He shredded his bed but he could at least have a feather pillow now :)

    My dog goes in the same yard with the chickens every morning. He quickly learned how warm the coop is and goes in and lays with them. He's got space where there is no poo. They are so cute. I think his scent helps keep predators away too.

    [​IMG] My dogs will let me know if a chicken is where it shouldn't be! It is a team effort, my Mini Dachshund Ozzy pins the offender down without hurting her and my Dachshund/Shepherd mix Honey comes to the back door and howls till I come and take care of the situation. They have never hurt a single bird. They seem to know where the boundaries for the chickens are and make sure they stay put!
