Unfortunately I'm the one who had the poor old dog die cause he ate to many chickens. I've got another problem. A puppy... We have 3 older dogs who I've seen kill rabbits, squirrels, wild birds, snakes, cats (ferral), ect. I figured I was making a huge mistake getting chickens. We've had chickens for 2 years now. The 1 dog who did kill them, died, the other 3... NEVER... Greatfully they don't think of it. We have left for a couple of days or so in the summer and left everyone loose. No killed birds!! They run loose together all the time now. My big dog Dagger has actually 'rolled' chickens cause they get too close to him in the yard. He hates to be bothered off of HIS terms. We got a pup, she was dropped and we found her in the woods all caught in a chain tangled up. She was screaming her head off. We took a walk and saved her. We just spayed her. Shes killed 2 chickens. But I swear I think she doesn't mean too. They are not all the way died or mauled when I find them. Ofcourse I am balling trying to revive them. She just looks at me like she is so confused or in trouble. She is so young, I love her & I want to give her a chance. I want her to be good enough to run with the other dogs. Is there any hope or am I just in for an endless battle??
