In the Brooder
- Sep 15, 2014
Hi, my wife and I obtained four birds through a sort of barter. She is a hair cutter and one of her long time clients couldn't keep the chickens that his son had. we traded haircuts for the birds. We have started with the four birds, a white Crested Polish, a Silver duck Wing OEGB and two Silkies (white and black). they have quickly become part of our family. Our two dogs (Cavalier King Charles Spaniels) have been great with them. One acknowledges that they are there but little else and the other is very interested, more like trying to care for them, sort of a chicken shepherd. Coco our OEGB gives her a poke now and then to keep her behaved. Lana isn't obtrusive, but wants to smell their bottoms, like dogs do to greet each other.
