stressful cease and desist on egg laying. Surprise, surprise! We already have 2 beautiful eggs! They are all now going into the coop with no encouragement. We must've chosen well (or they chose us well).

We have a cross poolde/schnauzer (very gentle and submissive.) ?? how to introduce him to the flock, as they will share the fenced backyard?

TIA

I have a schnoodle too and he is great with our birds! He walks around with them as if he were part of the flock. One of our pullets who is sort of a loner has been following him around lately...so cute! The only problem is that he has developed a taste for chicken poo!

As far as introducing yours, I would let him/her sniff the birds and check them out through a fence for a few days then introduce him/her among them on a leash before letting them loose together. After that just watch them closely for a few days after you set them loose together...you will know by watching your dog's reactions if it is safe or not.
Good luck!

Quote:Thanks Abt the name. I have used that name for many years.

As to the girls, they were in a very confined area. They now hove a very spacious 9 x 9 coop and a 1/4 acre fenced backyard. They were very, very busy today. We spent the entire day watching them play. Two distinct groups: The Adventure Girls and The Bitty Club. FUN, FUN, FUN!!
