    Have any of you had problems with your dogs eating chicken poop? My dog loves it and I can not get her to stop!

    Oh, gee, no, never heard of it!!!! I have three dogs, big and small and they all love, love, love chicken poop. Don't think about it too much. I try to look the other way!

    every time one of my dogs get out where the chickens are that is the first thing they all do. Must be yummy because they remember to go look for it. Even the puppies like it.

    Just be thankful you have less to step in.
    There IS no stopping them. My brand new puppy when I carefully introduced him ignored the chickens and ate the poop. *sigh* Accept it, or go mad.

    I mentioned to my vet the other day that both my dogs love to cruise the yard sniffing for and eating chicken poop. She just laughed and said she'd have to remember to check them for coccidiosis!

    Mine love the nanny berries even more than the hen squirt. Dogs are dogs.

    Ahahahaha and here I thought it was just me. When I raised the chicks in their brooder once they got big enough to get up the sides of the box to perch Farrah started slurping up chick poop around the sides of the box [​IMG]

    Both my dogs love it, however Elmer scavenges for it constantly. It drives me crazy!! [​IMG] I know I can't really stop it, but it makes me insane.
