We've been loosing a lot of chickens and ducks lately. My mom is interested in buying a guardian dog for them. Yes, I said buy. I believe that it is okay to buy a dog from a breeder if it is for work, like on a farm. This dog won't be a pet, he will be outside with the chickens. I've met a couple guardian dogs, and they love their work. I always wanted an Anatolian Shepherd, but they like to roam. This dog would need to stay in our property with the chickens. Is there a specific breed that is best for chickens?? It would have to be used to our goats, but it would be protecting the chickens.
