    My wife brought home a new puppy over the weekend. I was having a hard time getting her to stop chasing after the chickens the first few days. Yesterday she took out after the top hen of the flock. Bad idea. There is a reason she is at the top of the pecking order. That old girl took to whoopin' that puppy every which way. She was joined by two more before my wife stepped in. I was standing by watching the little thing get a lesson in leaving hens alone.
    I was willing to let it continue a little longer, just to make sure she got the point, but our big ol' Jersey Giant roo was making his way to the area to see what the noise was.

    I am pretty sure the chicken chasing issue has been resolved.... [​IMG]

    That should put an end to the chicken chasing. No more fun and games with the chickens.

    I'm guessing that issue is SOLVED!

    Both my dogs are uber interested in my chicks. Send your hen my way so they can both have a good thrashing. You could make some $$$ renting that out.

    THAT hen is the real dog whisperer. We need a dog training lesson here too. Spoiled Aussies think everything's a toy.

    I had to chuckle reading this post.... always good when animals can sort ot their own differences. Bet he/she won't do that again for a long while!

    My labradoodle ended up with a peep in his mouth several weeks ago. since then I am hesitant to let the girls out to free range (we have foxes and coyotes also) or let the mutt inside the fence. Should I try again as they are much bigger now or should I just leave well enough alone?

    I love this thread! [​IMG] I have an american bulldog who mothers my girls when they're chicks and then tries to engage them in bulldog play when they get bigger (never biting, or being aggressive, just goofy bulldog nonsense). There always comes a day when the little ones grow up - and then they chase her across the yard with seriousness. Just like that, change of dynamics! Gotta love life in the yard! [​IMG]
