Hi, i am soo excited because this week i receive my chicks from Ideal poultry this week, I can't wait to have them( 3 Golden comets, 2 red sex links, 3 amerecaunas, 2 white rocks, 3 plymouth rocks, and maybe some packing peanut chicks with the order too!) i am getting things ready for them, their brooder, feed (need some help deciding something natural/organic feed brand), and everything else...please tell me if there is something else i should take care of before they arrive. But i do have a question regarding having chickens; poultry in general around dogs or one Golden Retriever in my situation. My dog is very obedient, and nice she wont be a problem around the poultry, but what i am wondering about is that she does use the bathroom in the yard anywhere she wants to and when my chicks are bigger i would like to have them roam around the yard a little but i am worried if the grass that they might eat in the yard might be infected with something if my dog pees on the grass. Should this be a problem with the poultry(chickens, ducks) being in the yard and eating grass?(can cocci come from other animals?) or would it be a problem around my dog(chicken poop, etc) Well i appreciate the help, thank you!
