Tuesday's Tip from Our Junior Blogger: Canine Coop Patrol

After her first blog post last week, our Junior Blogger has taken this new status quite seriously.  So much so that she decided to create a journal to write down her tending tips as she thinks of them.

The other day I decided to turn to Little Chicken Tender when we developed a bit of a problem at Shady Pines. The coop has become Kramer's new snack shack.  I am at my wits end trying to keep him from going inside and eating the Goldhen Girls' leftovers.  I know I could remove the feeder during the day, but I would rather not if I can help it.  

Tuesday's Tip From Our Junior Blogger
Chicken tending tips straight from the mouth of a 5-year-old!

By Little Chicken Tender
How to Keep the Dog Out of the Coop:
If your dog gets into the chicken coop and eats all the food, grab him and pull him inside the house.  If he keeps going back then you have to watch him when you let him outside.  You can't close the door of the coop because the chickens might want to go in and eat or get a drink of water.  Or you could just put up a "No Dogs Allowed" sign.

Thanks, Little Chicken Tender for the tip!  Maybe after some time Kramer will learn not to go in, although I don't have a good feeling about it.  If you know labs, they think with their stomach. Wish us luck!

Stay tuned for more tips from the Tender on Tuesdays.  Thanks for reading!
