Acclimating Mina The Guard Dog and Chicks

Mina’s first introduction to our Chicks. Mina is almost a year old now and the chicks are two weeks old. Mina is an excellent guard dog, gentle with the hens and chasing away hawks, crows, and raccoons.  She was not liking the chicks at all but she sat as she was told. I’m gonna make her sit with the chicks a bit longer each day. She is very careful not to step on them as she tries to run away from their pecking at her toes and nose!

Mina is thinking, “Please do not peck at my nipples, they are tender, I just finished my first heat.”
