Herding Chickens

I am not sure how well this is going to work.  I do know I can only post two little videos on one  posting, so please bear with me.  My morning routine now includes putting Charlie, the dog, to work "herding" chickens.  The dog whisperer says every dog needs a job to be happy.  I'll let the videos talk for themselves.  Because I am not sure of what I am doing, the videos get very distorted if you try to enlarge them.  I will figure this out one day.

If you watch closely, the little red hen really "loves" Charlie, hence the peck on the nose.

I have it figured out, the chickens have imprinted with the dog, hense they think they too are dogs and dogs just don't lay eggs. Think Subday dinner.

Or else we got duds.

Maybe there is egg-laying school? This has been fun for us, too. Vicarious chicken raising is the only way to go, with you and Paul doing all the work.

Actually after thinking this matter through, these are probably welfare chickens, perhaps if you put a cell phone in the coop they could become productive.

Stephen is a trouble maker.
