I'm thinking of getting bantams, although I have 2 Cavaliers that chase birds and want to eat them. We have a Pee Wee in our garden and after a month or so my dogs got use to it, I want my dogs to get use to the chickens. I know what their reaction will be when I get the chickens- sit there, bark, drool. The chickens will be in a secure coop and run with chicken wire down to 20cm deep(my dogs dig!) but I don't want my chickens to feel stressed with the dogs sitting their. I am willing to train my dogs. How ever long it may take I will do anything to train them. So, does anyone have any training tips or ideas. (I haven't got the chickens yet) Thank you for any help!!
