Has anyone had trouble with their chickens picking on their dogs. I have two miniature poodles one is 10 pounds the other around 22. The little one got so freaked that he managed to squeeze through a very small space between the gate and the fence to get out. What is the best way to handle this. I was thinking maybe hanging out in the backyard and when they start to come after him unprovoked squirt them with a water bottle. Should I use a verbal correction followed by the squirt bottle or is this futile?
