I've read through alot of threads about how to assimilate dogs and chickens...I've really enjoyed some of the ideas presented. We are scheduled to get 12 day old pullets in the next couple of days and I've been thinking about putting a baby monitor near the brooder area, with the receiver in the house (close to where the 2 dogs and 3 cats hang out), so that the dogs/cats can hear the noise and become acclimated to the chickens. I think if they constantly hear the noise the chickens make then they will become used to them more more easily and face-to-face introductions may occur without any drama. What do you all think? Would this be something you would try?
