Bmc's are primarily bay dogs, i believe. All dogs have some ability to bay or to tree, but many have had that ability enforced, through selective breeding.
Same with retrieving, herding etc.....
I became interested in mountain curs, through hunting. I kept them, and became enamored with them, because of their versatility.
Honestly, i cant afford a dog now, that doesnt pull it's weight.

This past year they hatched out many chicks, some bantams and some from my larger hens, with great success raising the babies. The only problem with these birds is they are really tiny, they may be among the smallest if not the smallest breed of chicken, so they don't make much of a meal if you want to eat them.
