So here are some ideas for my guard dog idea.
The picture above is my coop I want the dog to be a guardian animal.
The black is a tall fence to keep my birds in.
The blue is the gate/door for the fence.
The red is an half of my coop with run my ducks and some of my hens are currently in I probably will put the hens out and my show birds in come spring.
The yellow is my rabbit pen.
The white is a section of my coop for the birds that are in the big fenced in part.
The green could be a shelter for a guard dog
And the rest in the black would be for 10-15 birds and a guard dog.
1. What do you think about the setup I am doing renovations this summer and this wouldn’t be hard to change it to fit the dog.
2. I would let the dog out daily. So space shouldn’t be a problem
3. What are good dogs who can protect chickens from preadators and not be the preadator.
4. Would there be a problem if the chickens and dog ate the wrong food.
