I just got my 6 week old chicks in the coop and my dog is obsessed with getting at them. He a little Boston Terrier. We have cats, and even a pet rat that he is completely friendly with. I think that he is so interested in them because they are in a coop and out of his reach. I took a chick out of the coop and held it in front of him and he just licked, no biting. I don't think he will harm them, but does anyone have any ideas on how to better introduce the dog to the chicks? I'm hoping that when the birds get bigger than him, and they will, he will lose interest. Any ideas or suggestion would be much appriciated.
