Hi. I am a new chicken owner, with a new coop in the backyard, a fenced run, and six pullets: three Rhode Island Reds and three Barred Plymouth Rocks. During the past week we have shored up our existing fence, built a second fenced run for the hens, and double-fenced our dog so she can't get to them. She is our main concern, as she is dying to get to those hens. She is an Eskimo spitz mix and I don't think we'll ever be able to trust her around the flock. We used to have a Great Pyrenees and are thinking of getting another one. We live in South Carolina. Anybody in our area with a Pyr puppy for sale? Happy to have located this BYC site!
