I have a flock of six, 2 Buff Orps, 2 ISAs, an Easter Egger and Golden Laced Wyandotte. I also have two medium size dogs who go out in the backyard where the chickens reside to do their business and run off some energy. The chickens are fenced in with livestock fencing. I have seen the dogs run towards the fence to scare the chickens and they have gotten in a few times through a hole which I'm repairing today, but no violence so far, I believe they might just want to play with them, but of course I'm certainly not going to give the dogs free reign and interaction with the chickens, just in case. Sorry for the long background, here's the question, does allowing the dogs to interact with chickens in anyway, increase or decrease any issues between the two? I've also seen guard dogs on here, so just wondered if it'd help prevent any tragedies. Thanks!
