Aussies And Chickens?
(Stanley, North Dakota, USA)
I'm getting my first Aussie this weekend, it's a female that is 8 wks old. I also have 5 chickens, and I will be getting more soon. My question is, can I teach an Aussie to guard the chickens? I'll let her see the chickens very often. Will she kill one when she gets bigger? I don't really want to risk it because I lost a chicken to a Brittney Spaniel, but Brittney's are hunting dogs.
