When I go out to the chickens the dog is with me every time. So when I'm throwing them veggies or scratch or whatever, she's right there next to me. Every time. (note-our chickens are in a run and I just throw stuff in from outside the run so the dog is also outside the run). So today dh is back there loading the truck with grain. He's up on top of the trailer where the chickens aren't paying attention to him and they are contentedly pecking around on the ground. The dog has her toy and runs over to the run (she thinks everyone wants to throw her ball, even the chickens) and every one of them is suddenly legging it over to where she is, crowding the fence. Apparently they think she has a lot to do with the grain showers they get.
