    I'm not sure if this was the correct section to put this in but I was wondering if anyone else had dogs that love to eat chicken poop? If so, any suggestions on how to at least slow it down? I definitely don't want to keep my chickens locked up but I also don't want my dogs consistently eating chicken poop. Thanks

    Yep mine too [​IMG] . The only way to prevent it is to keep the dogs from having access to the poop. you may be able to teach them not do do it while you are watching, at least.

    5 dogs every day clean the yard of poop I get so frustrated! Though I know they don't have a clue that its bad all they think is it taste good its edible. I would try to clean it up, maybe it will work, and I do close the chickens in though they have a lot of area the issue is they get out when I'm not home and do there business every where. I'm just to old to do the cleaning thing ( actually really young)[​IMG]
