the day before yesterday, something got one of our pullets, and it was very eaten. it was in the middle of the day (i was running errands from 2-5) and we're guessing it was a racoon or bobcat. anyway, we figured the only way to keep free range chickens safe from day-time predators is a good dog. so i'm wondering if any of you have input on the best kind of dog for a chicken bodyguard??
