    I fed Mr. Rico today and eat ate a few bites then he got rushed by chickens. They went headstrong into his dog food! I rushed to grab the camera, here is the tail end of the ordeal, enjoy!

    My chickens used to rush the dog food bowl until my dog started defending her food. [​IMG]

    The dog food won't hurt them. It shouldn't be fed as a regular subsistence because it has too much salt for chickens, but as an occasional treat, it's just a protein boost. No problem.

    I wish Mr. Rico would defend himself, he's such a chicken.

    For a long time, my dog Jelly would just sit and look at me helplessly while the entire flock pecked away at her food, but after a while she figured out that it didn't take much action from her to run them off.

    Also, not longer after that hubub, i started feeding her while the chickens are in their coop. It's just easier.

    Here she is. It's kind of sad, in a funny way. [​IMG]

    HE is an inside dog, I just wanted him to eat outside today, it was a nice day. I don't think he appreciated it....

    Those are some cute dog(s)! The chickens will certainly eat up all their food if they were allowed to!! Poor Mr. Ricco and Jelly! Yep, they need to be faster!! [​IMG]
