    I started my slow introduction of chicks to my doggies today...happy it went well! Magnum my oldest could have cared less after a few sniffs and curious looks. Melina my 1 year old was curious and not sure what to think about them....the chicks snuck through the chicken wire and were under her feet before I knew it (how could they have no fear?? She's huge!!) and she just stared at them...thank goodness! It almost gave me a heart attack...little sneaky chicks!! Here are a few pics:

    They obviously could have cared less about the dogs they fell right asleep as they were being sniffed from above:

    Lovely dogs! [​IMG]
    We had been buying our shepherd these toys called squeaky jacks. they tumble when you throw them and they squeak.
    Fast forward to a box of tumbling squeaking chicks...I only expected bad things.
    I guess we were lucky. She just seemed to know that those fuzzy yellow things weren't tennis balls.

    The other weekend, I did not shut the latch all the way and had chickens in the garden corn. No carnage. She did not seem to care.
    We are lucky with our dogs. It seems you are too! Let's hope it keeps up! [​IMG]

    Thank you !! I am a proud mama of all my animals!! I'm hoping that every day small "chicken meetings" will get the dogs used to having them around and they can free range one day. Keeping my fingers crossed!!

    'Peanuts' usually are roosters but there's a 1 in 10 chance you got a pullet for a 'peanut'...
