We’ve had our chickens for six months, and we’ve had our dog, Jackie Mudpie, for seven years.
Each afternoon, we let the chickens free range for about 90 minutes, before dark — and we keep Jackie inside.
So today, in order to clean and move the hen house, we created an experiment.
We braced ourselves for a possible dog-chicken attack, and let them be together.
The results are in and they are conclusive.
Not only should the farmer and the cowman be friends; so should the chickens and the doggie.
