  •  Do your dogs bother them Aji? We can have 4 (10+ / 0-)

    chickens apiece now here in the burbs. My boy, Said, is very kind to turtles. When I am mowing he picks them up and moves them to another spot out of my way. He kills moles and I think would kill a squirrel if he could catch it but he just lopes into all the birds on the ground, I think he likes to see them fly. I've wondered how he would do with chickens.

    Tracy B Ann - technically that is my signature. If I had Bill Gates money, I'd buy Detroit.

    •  LOL - we don't give 'em the chance. (10+ / 0-)

      Chicken wire and ProPanels around the perimeter.

      When the chicks were . . . oh, a few weeks old - no longer cute and fuzzy, but much smaller versions of adult-ish-looking chickens, we let the dogs into the studio to see them, tightly controlled.  I held Stormy in my hands, because she was the calmest, while brings brought the puppies (4-year-olds at that time) over to meet them.  She-Wolf, predictably, gave Storm a sloppy doggy kiss.  Raven, just as predictably, followed her by clamping his mouth over Storm's entire head.  We opened his jaws, and there's Stormy, blinking, completely unfazed.

      But I do think they'd chase them, at least initially.  And since we have to worry about weasels (what killed their sibs) and snakes, we keep them fenced off.

      Authentic Native American silverwork, jewelry, photography, and other art here.
