I also got the chickens for my dog as well. She's a Border Collie trained to herd sheep ... The dog and I are both quite happy to watch the chickens for quite a while. However, I always have to go work on something; my dog thinks watching the chickens is her work and she loves every minute of it! She LOVES her chickens!!smile I thought this was hilarious. We used to have a border collie/lab mix and I can just see her rounding up the chickens! She used to herd us when we first got her.
