Harley’s Chicks

Untitled-1My dog is a Cairn Terrier, which means he loves things that dart around…mice..gophers…vermin.   Now for some reason he does not go crazy when we have little chicks that dart around the brooder.   Instead for some reason these chicks are his charges.   He will sit for hours just watching them race around.   I always think at some point he will bolt into the crate that is holding all the baby chickens.

I don’t kid myself if there was a loose one he would likely gobble them up, so we need to be careful that doesn’t happen.   In the meantime this process makes him a good companion for our flock of chickens because he is integrated with them like a good sheep or cattle dog is with their heard.  He hangs out with them from their first days, until their last
