OK, so I am getting chicks for the first time in May. We have an 18 month old yellow lab (bird hunting dog) and a 15 year old brown dog that showed her ratting ability when she was younger and still tries to catch squirrels....well, it's now futile, but the hunt instinct is still there and I'm sure the chickens will be slow enough for her to either catch, injure or torment. The coop and dog kennel are not in sight of each other. I will need to manage my flock so that they are in the yard when the dogs are in their kennel. When I get home from work I have to let the dogs out to eat and socialize with the family, but I'll need to gather the roaming hens back into their run well before the sun goes down and before I release the hounds. Is there a way to train the hens to come when I call them and get their chicken-butts back in their run to keep them safe from my dogs?
