    I have started socializing my LGD puppy with our hens. It was kind of stand offish at first but now they are becoming feed pan buddies. I thought you might like to see some pictures. ET [​IMG]

    His name is Bear. He is a Maremma/Pyrenees livestock guardian dog and is seven weeks old today. I hope to use him to guard free range poultry and goats in the future. [​IMG]

    Bear is an awesome name! He's so cuddly and what a good boy behaving so nicely with the chickens. I want one!

    Doing same here but about 4 months ahead. Watch out for missing feeders. Pup may become partial to hiding them. Mine does and he eats chicken feed as well making for interesting bowel habits.
