Hello all, In my area we have plentiful coyote, raccoons, possum, and other wildlife. I know my coop and run will be a like a new buffet opening up in the spring. We are working on making the coop very predator proof and making the run pretty safe as well. The ladies will be locked up at night in the coop. I am thinking of perhaps putting the dogs doghouse in the run and have him sleep there to provide an additional deterrant to local predators. So the dog would be separated from the chickens. (run and coop are attached) Any thoughts on this? The dog is not a dog we have yet, I am hoping to get a dog about the same time as the chickens. The dog will be a working dog to help protect the chickens and future livestock we are planning on getting. Thanks for your thoughts. Good AND Bad.
