The hens love to free range and hang out in the bushes, but my dog really really wants to eat them. I've attempted to train him, but his breed was bred for hunting small animals. I've tried having them take turns in the yard, but Pippin, the dog, wines constantly when he can't roam the yard. The hens do have a large fenced space, but they prefer the yard--who wouldn't? Has anyone tried a muzzle for their dog to keep the chickens safe and yet in the same space?
