    My Husky is killing my chickens and ducks, I need help!

    Once the dog started killing chickens he had too much fun and you'll never stop it from doing it again - you always got to keep them apart - you are basically fighting against nature - I wouldn't let he chickens out to roam the yard anymore _ keep them in the coop
