Did a quick search but did not find an answer. Do any of you have a dog primarily to protect poultry? My problem is mostly weasels and mink, but today I lost half my broilers to a skunk, I think. I was wondering if you could get a dog and train it to protect chickens similar to a LGD but smaller. I was wondering about terriers (I have rats too, but the weasels are keeping the numbers down) but could you keep one with the chickens? I also have rabbits in the coop and it would have to be good with small children. All I have had up to this point are hunting dogs, and they will kill my birds as fast as anything.
