Is YOUR Canine Chicken Friendly?
by Debbie Bosworth from Dandelion House
Call us late bloomers in the four-legged department, but for years just keeping up with the demands of family life and homeschooling was plenty! It wasn't until our daughter began pining away for her very own puppy that we even considered getting a dog. And we wanted a dog that would keep harmony in the henhouse too!
Help us out: Tell us what you think are the most (and least) chicken-friendly dog breeds out there ...

Caption It Contest: Brooding Tom
One of our Facebook Fans, Northern Roots Farm, shared this photo of her occupationally challenged turkey, adding:

"Ralphie, my Bourbon Red turkey tom, has decided to break all gender and race stereotypes by sitting on a mixed clutch of turkey and duck eggs! Coop politics are never dull!"

If this tom could talk what would he say?
