    I am worried about my Pregnant dog, she keeps eating chicken poo and I am just wondering if there is anyone out there that might know if a little bit ( The stuff she gets when I turn my head) is Ok?? I really hope that it is not going to effect the pregnancy

    It's gross, but it shouldn't cause her any harm. Most dogs do it.

    Quote:My mom breeds Border Collies and Rose aka the female when she is around the barn she eats both Rabbit and Chicken poo!!

    It doesn't hurt her or the puppies!

    Your puppy Mama will be fine!

    My nasty dog farms tootsie rolls out of the catbox when he can, eats his own doodie, and that of the neighbors dogs. Really [​IMG]

    Maybe try to keep an eye out for salmonella symptoms wouldn't worry about it much...I think most dogs could eat the contents of a full porta potty with few side affects...barring some horrific bad breath.

    Aren't chickens automatic treat dispensers for dogs?

    I'd rather have them eat chicken poo than chicken [​IMG]

    always changing
    Yup, chickie poo, horse poo, cat poo, barf, and get into garbage to dig out baby diapers to eat the poo out of them, just the poo part. And they love to roll in dead seagulls at beach.....................
