Hi there Going to be picking a lot of brains on here. We have 9 chickens ( 3 of which are cockerels). With the exception of mum they are all 9 months old. Getting 3 eggs a day. We live in Cyprus and have two dogs (both rescue dogs) as well as the chickens. Unfortunately one dog was a street dog and tasted fresh chicken so we have had to partition the garden off as he tries to catch them. The other dogs just lays there and let's them peck her.
