    Are Goat studs profitable?

    Hey everyone! We weren’t sure which forum to post this in, so we just put it here. My daughter is wanting to get Nubian goats, but isn’t sure if they will be profitable.

    Best internment for LGD puppy?

    Thank you everybody for the opinions. I feel like there is half the LGD owners who suggest keeping the pup with the chickens from the beginning, and the other half say, to keep them separate, and not give them the opportunity to hurt the chickens. Anyways, we will update everyone in a couple...

    Best internment for LGD puppy?

    We had her sleeping in the barn with the chickens, but is that not a good idea? At night should she stay in the separate pen that she stays in when we are gone?

    Best internment for LGD puppy?

    That’s what we were doing, letting her be with them while supervised, and not with them while unsupervised, but then we thought everyone was telling us to put the dog and chickens together, and not to have them separate. Starting tomorrow, we will start with all @Beekissed info & advice, and see...

    We got a wonderful LGD puppy, she is about 4 months old now, and we have her in a huge chainlink pen(that used to be our garden) with the chickens surrounding her pen in their chainlink pen...so she is in a pen, and the chickens are in a surrounding pen. She does great, and we let her out with...

    Best way to keep calves safe?

    Thank you everybody for the ideas! My daughter really didn’t want another dog to raise either, but she just decided if she was going to have animals of any kind, she was going to need protection for them, so she got an LGD puppy, and Sheera the pup was the best decision she made for her...
