    Our whole house is done in vinyl plank. That makes for easy sweep or vacuum. I’m with you guys on carpet. Had my share of dirty carpet, over the years. We love the vinyl plank. :)

    Yes he does! Looks like much more than an extra half Missy.

    LOL, when I saw the picture, two things came to mind: "What is Mel watching?" and those look like vampire fangs on him!

    Magnificent Mel became mischievousl Mel today....I have been wondering where the fluffy butt chickens eggs have been.....I found Mel eating them out in the goat yard....
    Then this afternoon i was out with the goats ...and looked toward the goat house and Mel was up on the top goat table, eating roo poo from one loose roo....
    Late this afternoon, the baby chicks got out of the chicken yard , and Mel chased them till i yelled at him......

    We ended up having quite a talk, him and i, ......:old he ended up rolling onto his back ... and put his paws up:lol::lol::lol:......and said he was sorry:yesss:.....he's quite the boy!

    I don't think he's had a lot of chicken contact. Joe only had 4 I think and problems with them attacking each other. IIRC 2 chickens left when he died :hit

    Mel probably didn't get in where the chickens were (of course I'm making a bit of a leap here based on not all that much information). Guess you need to exclude Mel from the nest area. Be forewarned BIG dogs can get through surprisingly small chicken doors. I had to put a vertical divider wire through the auto door so Merlin couldn't get in the coop. He scared the bejeezus out of the chickens so he had to be kept out. Poor things spent most of their time self cooped up. I was told that given the opportunity he would definitely raid the nests.
