this is the sleeping -at-my-window sow who has decided she is not leaving the house yard, she will not be convinced to go out any of the gates.... :roll:
so, because i am too tired to argue with her today, I gave in and gave her her daily porridge in the yard. all the chooks joined her.

who said Old MacDonald wasn't a practical way to farm......

havent ever had any issue with the pigs in with chooks (aside from vacuuming up all the grain) or the dogs (aside from demolishing and devouring three months supply of dog biscuits)
Guess it may depend on if they are all raised together from small, like any learnt behaviour (and maybe it may be different if they were hungry i guess :lol: :lol: :lol: ) We have disposed of some fox affected carcasses through the pigs- :r but don't worry- i disguise it if there is enough left to be a recognisable chicken....

Dexter & traditional purebred Jersey cattle; Dorper sheep; Berkshire Piggies; heritage rare breed chooks, duckies & guinea fowl Mad little pomeranians & Maremma dogs- & still learning about it all.
