    Yesterday we had a scare with a neighbors dogs. This morning my chickens are charging at my 13 year old chihuahua. Any of you experience this before?

    It's only natural that they would now regard dogs as dangerous.

    My chickens charged both of my barn cats, and that took them off the cat's hunting list! Never had an issue of the cat's stalking the birds after that. Maybe they just wanted to erase any possible predator thoughts from your dog's mind!

    Hopefully so. I know they're freaked out and by all means the need to be able to show my dog they aren't scared. Was just something new to me
