    Take one K9 exercise pen, wrap with chicken wire, toss in one spare dogloo, some straw, a feeder and waterer, top off with a heat lamp and viola ! No more stinking up the house!!

    I bent up a piece of hail screen to put over the opening (Thanks Katy for the tip) for a few nights to keep them in the dogloo until they learn thats where they go at night.

    Quote:Well last time i looked out my Akita was sleeping right beside them. So lets just say that the last thing a predator will be thinking about when entering my yard is tunneling [​IMG]


    This is her standard Sentry Post. She is VERY protective of her Chickens LOL Our family to for that matter. However if someone else's chicken, cat, dog, hamster etc comes around well she doesnt offer them the same quarter.
