Comment to 'Do female dogs have a different style of guarding '
  • Chickens - we just got some hatchlings and they are in a box in the garage under a heat lamp getting protected until they have their pin feathers and can brave the wild and whacky Texas weather.  I am not sure how the dogs will react to them but they have not been introduced yet.  I am building their coop and a fenced in area then will introduce them to the dogs once they are able to move around freely. I hope it goes well. 

    We do have some eagles and hawks that make our backyard home and I have seen silver fox and red foxes roaming nearby. I tried to talk my wife out of getting chickens but .. no such luck. Will see how this turns out. Hopefully the dogs will accept them.
