I never let my dog out without my supervision these days because when we had little chicks she killed two "retrieving" them to me. But, now my roo is five months old and getting pretty well you know! So they flock and the dog and I were out having treats while I cleaned water bottles when the dog decided to check out what was in the chicken treat bowl. Rooroo reared back and gave her a sharp peck on the head! Yeah! chalk one up for chickendom! The dog looked SO shocked!! But, she gives them all a wide berth now!
