Hey everyone, after my lifelong dream of getting a home in the country, and getting chickens, I've had Nothing but issues keeping them alive!! First it was raccoons. Finally caught two in the act of raiding my coop and turned them into vulture chow. Then weeks later, my neighbors miniature pinchers attacked and killed four of my flock and mauled a turkey. Months of having their dogs jump the fence have led to nothing. Now I have FOX issues!! Once a week a bird went missing. Thought it was the neighbors dog, but those crap dogs leave chewed bodies. Then it snowed last week. Just yesterday my yard was mess of feathers and fox tracks all over. I've had it. I've lost over twenty birds the past year. So I'm thinking about getting a dog. The chickens will stay in their run forever more and no more free ranging. But I can't have a fox digging up the fence or climbing over it. I need help. I'm ready to train a dog, but I only have an acre, so a big dog like a pyr, much as I'd love one, probably won't work, would it? What about a corgi with a dog door into the barn to keep out of the cold Maine winters? Help please!
