    Okay, so Ninjapoodles and I already know about our spooky similarities - similar politics, children with the same name, the poodle and chicken thing . . .

    but apparently we are not alone. A new post appears with a reqest for dog pics. I open it. he first pic: sporttees apparently has a lovely poodle roaming around her coop, who looks remarkably like my Sasha.

    So how many of us are there? Is this, like, a type of person or something?

    Post here if you have chicken(s) and poodles(s) living together. I do!

    I have 4 standard poodles, 1 toy & 1 miniature. They are not allowed by my 35 chickens. They would want to chase them & that is not allowed!

    I have a toy poodle. Got her through rescue 2.5 years ago. She's timid and shy and skittish......

    Until it comes to my chickens!!! She killed one of my Silkies.

    Anytime we let her out unsupervised in the back yard, she heads straight to their coop and terrorizes them barking.

    Who'd have thunk??

    My mother, whom BTW lives far too close, has a big black standard poodle. He is the holy chicken terror.

    All these people kept telling us how wonderful poodles are, how smart they are... ya, well, we got the worlds only brain dead poodle. But, we love him and he LOVES kids. So we'll keep him despite his chicken chasing.

    OMG!!! Is that a poodle?? Get it away. I'm scared.

    I like NInjapoodle but I'm not sure what her politics are. She just seems to
    have a lot of common sense to me. Well, except for having poodles. Those
    things are vicious. I just mention poodle to my Pitt mix and he starts to cower.
