I received two chickens this morning and they are getting used to their new home. I'm told by the farmer who gave them to me that after a week they'll be fine to free range. I introduced my two dogs to them separately, outside the run and the smaller one, a fox terrier mix wanted to dive right in. The other one a Newfoundland/Golden Retriever mix sniffed and wasn't very impressed. I will keep bringing the small dog closer and closer every day until they meet which I hope will work. I've watched the Dog Whisperer video and have read a lot of articles however actually managing the meet will be a challenge. I'm sure once she is used to seeing them, all will be fine as this is her and my first experience with chickens. Wish me luck!
