didn't go so well. I bought this beautiful rooster (I wanted to hear him crow) Im not sure what breed he was. I put him in a pen next to the duck pen. We had 3 dogs but they stayed in a pen in the back of the house. This rooster was funny. He thought he was a duck. He ran with them and went they went into the pond so did he! Needless to say he wasn't happy when he got out. He was a Mother's Day present from my son. My husband let the dogs out to run one day a week later and the next thing I knew Chaunteclair was dead. I learned then that dogs and chickens sometimes don't go together.
