Well, no one is dead...yet...but I have some concerns for sure. My neighbors dogs keep getting our of her yard and coming over to my house which I am going to be putting my chickens outside soon and come summer time my larger hens are going to be allowed to free range in our yard. We have about 20 acre's but we will keep them mostly in the front pasture by the house. Now, I prefer for my hens to free range during the day and coop up at night but with the neighbors dog coming around I have started to get nervous. I knew she use to have chickens, 6 red sexlink hens actually though they don't seem to be around anymore so I don't know if her dog killed them and if her dog will come after my birds.I would prefer to free range because i live with my folks and they are not real keen on putting up fences just for chickens and feel they will be just fine wandering around. What do you think I should do if I can't put up a run? The neighbor has one big white German Shepard, one Doberman, and one mystery white dog who mostly comes into our yard. I tried getting my parents to agree on a livestock guardian dog but they didn't want that either and I can't just keep my chickens in a coop all day. It's a 10x20 refurbished horse stall but for a total of 12 or more chickens I don't think that is enough room.
