    Hey all! Really excited to be a first time chicken farmer! I will have a lot of questions but we are trying to do our research. My biggest sorry is my crazy dogs stressing them out. Any advice?

    Keep the dogs far away from them. Birds are easily stressed because everything wants to eat them & usually do.
