We have 7 Maremmas that protect our chooks and keep them safe.
We are proud to say that all 7 (+2 kelpies) have been rescued! We chose to rescue our Maremma's because we believe in second chances and that its not their fault many of them that end up in shelters and rescue groups are very good Maremma's that simply have not had a chance to be in an environment suitable to express their natural behaviour. Maremma's have an Italian heritage, where they were bred to protect sheep in the mountains, their natural instinct to protect has successfully worked in Australia, protecting Free Range Chooks!
There names are Chucky, Dylan, Zoe, Kip, Buddy, Ollie, Rose, Turbo and Jack.
