Update::: We did end up getting an LGD in November 2019. SHE WAS A GOOD CHOICE! We dreaded the 2 years of trainin, weren’t comfortable getting an adult LGD, were scared of the loses we might suffer from one, but it didn’t go that way. She accidentally killed 1 chicken(yes it was our favorite hen), but the one loss saved the whole flock. We haven’t lost a single chicken to a predator since we’ve had her. She Counts them every night, she checks on them, she is sad for one that has a poopy butt, and she knows when we get new chickens(she doesn’t like newcomers much, but eventually excepts them). Thank you all for all the impit you gave. She is turning out great with a bit of work, and we are working on more every day.
