Not sure what your question is...

Chickens off and on for 25+ years and still learning.

You should desentize your lab to the idea of the chickens. Hand out with them close to the fence on a leash where they can see the chickens if possible until they go completely calm (lay down, not paying attention to the chickens etc) discourage them if they seem frantic about trying to sniff etc. I trained my dogs to ignore my chickens, they follow me around the coop and run helping with chores and dont bother the chicks. My one really loving boy is actually scared of them, hes such a sweetie he would hever attack them but they sure love to peck at him.

Like bobbi-j said, not sure what your question is, but if your dog goes into their yard and attacks their chickens you are responsible for all damages. If a chicken flys the fence and is in your yard and your dog get it, not your problem.

KJzCola-check out the Georgia thread.  Many people in our area keep and raise chickens.   They may be able to help you replace your girl.  Feel free to message me anytime.  I'm in Hall County.
