We don't want to take any chances on accidents between my free range birds and our two german shepherds, therefore we walk the dogs on a leash during the day while the chickens free range. Most of the adult chickens stay out of the fenced yard, but some of the younger ones still slip in every once in awhile. Yesterday I'm walking our younger GSD Kane around the yard when my little polish Pearl sees me. She comes running. I automatically tightened my hold on Kane's leash even though both of the dogs are good about ignoring the chickens. Last week or the week before Pearl pushed her luck and scared the tar outta Kane by sneaking up and pecking him on the back of the leg. Pearl is convinced that anything I have is food, including a 100+ lb. dog. Thankfully it was Kane she pecked and not our older GSD Jax; who might have reacted differently. So back to yesterday evening. Kane and I are walking and here comes Pearl. Kane stopped and tilted his head to study her. Pearl keeps coming. Kane keeps watching. Pearl walked right up to Kane and pecked him on the nose. I swear if Kane were to open his mouth, Pearl would fly right in. I love my little Pearl, but she gives a whole new meaning to dumb cluck!
