    My herd dog (mut) is very funny, loyal, young and playful. He never even knew there where chickens around until I put them outside in the open air coop. He then became the chicken patrol dog. ha ha

    I had just finished putting up the new chicken wire for the run and hadden't finished it yet when I started to walk inside for a break. The weather got real windy and the temp dropped and must have gotten my dog in one heck of a running mood.
    He ran and stooped and run around me like crazy and saw that I wasn't paying attention to him so he ran full speed toward the back of the coop and BAM !!! He slamed into the new checken wire I just put up and all I heard was that real funny (oh crap) bark ! Ha Ha

    And the best part is ... instead of running away all the chickens came to the scene and just stared at the dog. I know they were thinking ...

    hey dumb dog...theres a fence there !
    or maybe ... thats the reason we are still in here !

    Well it was funny to me so I thought I would share it.

    [​IMG] haha i hope the dog wasnt going after the hens tho!! Ive seen they have a crazy instinct to chase and catch/eat birds, but our dog has changed all that!
    She doesnt do that anymore, so that good. [​IMG] i hope all is well and if it happens again, just keep teaching her/him and all can be in harmony!
