Not sure if this is the right forum for this, but this seems to be where people generally post about LGD. Last year we had made a decision to get some chickens. My kids had also been clamoring for a pup. So we got a 4 month old great pyrenees pup that had been farm raised around chickens, goats, horses and pigs. 4 days later we had a death in the family and my husband decided we were going to move, so getting my chicks was out. Well, a year later we have not been able to sell the house because of the market crash. And I would like to get our chicks in the spring. But by then my pyr will be almost 2 yrs old. I had gotten this particular dog because both the parent dogs and she had been kept safely around poultry. She is a well manner, quiet adolescent. She listens well, is eager to please especially if you have food in hand. Doesn't bother the cats or our free roaming iguana. Very nurturing with my small children. When we had a power outage due to a snow storm she found the boys and laid with them to keep them safe and warm. If we are out walking, she will not let them out of sight and generally walks with them rather than at my heel. I know she has imprinted on the children rather than on chickens. And I do not need her to be a full time LGD. I just want a dog that (With training, obviously) can be safe around my birds. Do you think she will be ok? Thanks in advance!
