Ok I live way out in rural Northeastern Oklahoma. I have 2 outside dogs and 2 inside dogs. A barn cat and 6 chickens. None of them bother my chickens now. I raised the chickens from baby chicks. They free range during the day while I am at work and I put them up and let them out everyday. I was afraid to eat my 3 roosters and gave them away to be eaten because I was afraid the dogs would get a taste of the chicken blood etc. and then be after my chickens I wanted to keep. Does anyone have this problem? Or had to deal with this problem? We live on a farm but we have dogs dumped all the time and I usually keep them after getting them shots etc. But these dogs I have now we have had for years. I would like to eat some of mine next year after I have babies and have to get rid of some roosters again. Can anyone give me some advice?
