Dogs and Chickens: Harmony and Predator Protection

Posted by Theresa

I got to test my dog training skills when I trained my 2 dogs, Darby and Shadow, to not hurt my chickens.  Darby is a beagle mutt and Shadow is a blind Shepard mutt.  Shadow is a killer and has strong predator instincts.  It’s in his nature to kill all manner of little rodents, rabbits or wild turkeys.  Shadow went blind in January 2013, caused by a degenerative disease of the rods and cones in his eyes.  He went blind about 3 months before we got the chicks so I expected he would be the bigger challenge to train of the 2 dogs.

August Wildflowers at Little Wolf Nature Preserve

Removing a Stump

Posted by Theresa

Shadow and chickens watching while I remove a stump

Labored several hours today to remove a big stump that I was tired of stepping over 3-4 times a day. Here, Shadow pretends HE dug the hole, and the chickens pretend they helped by being under my feet all day looking for tasty bugs in newly dug up dirt.
