Hi all! I would love your input on my set up! I have a mixed flock of layers (7 X 20 week olds and 10 X 2 week olds), ducks (2 adults and 12 ducklings) and 50 newly hatched meat birds (red Rangers). All the babies are in brooders inside and the mature fowl are in a large coop with an automatic chicken door leading to a yard enclosed in 200' of pos/neg poultry netting. We've had some predator issues but haven't lost any with this set up. Soon though the babies will join the outside world so I have a huge fence going up that's 6' tall covering over an acre, a huge night coop for the ducks and meat birds and a new pyr/sheppard pup (10 weeks). The puppy comes from a homesteading neighbor with goats and chickens and was basically born in a coop. She's been with chickens from day 1. She's never shown any fear or chased them until a couple mean girl hens started pecking at her. Now they get into a stand off. Question is, how do I open up this space to the flock and dog? She's been in their poultry net yard in an open crate full of blankets in a dog house but the chickens are pecking at her and making her want to chase them. Will they still do that when they have more space and if I move her house further away? Do I divide areas within the fenced yard? I'm looking for an adult trained LGD but no luck so far. I'd rather not train two puppies at once. Hope this all made sense. Thanks in advance!
