I have a 19-lb cocker spaniel, Lulu, who is feistier than any creature I have ever met. When she gets around my parents' 90-lb boxer, she scares him to death. She sits by her back windows all day to make sure no birds come in the yard. If they do and I am home, I have to let her out to chase them out of the yard... On that note, do I ever introduce her to my 10 chickens? The chickens are about 6-weeks-old, and I just moved them to their coop in our backyard. Lulu cannot reach them, but she cannot just go play in her yard anymore (all she can focus on is the fact that there are 10 chickens in her backyard). I am wondering if anyone knows if she will ever just get used to them. I would love it if I could introduce them (when the chicks are grown) to one another in a controlled environment, and let the chickens "put her in her place." I have heard that once chickens are full-grown, they are pretty feisty themselves. Does anyone have experience with this kind of situation? And if so, can you please help me??
