    Welcome to Backyard chickens. I can tell you that a dog that is afraid of chickens is the best kind. Many new members say their dog or cat, killed their entire flock.
    You may also want to post on your state thread, I've heard there are threads for both Northern & Southern California, possibly other regions as well.

    That's a lovely mix of birds yin have there. I hope you are enjoying your new adventures. Keeping chickens is a fantastic and very rewarding hobby.
