I don't get what you are saying?
'Chicks' should be in the house in a cage w/a heat lamp. Not just where ever and never where any other animal can get them.
Birds, like rabbits, can die from stress, IE dogs barking at them non-stop.
If these are real chicks, I don't see how the weenie dog would look fat. Is there no bits left?
Really, we need to know what it is you are calling 'chicks' first.
And you have 5 dogs, they have more[unknown #], is there no law on how many one land can have??? Lots of states have 4 dogs per land/owner, anymore and you need a kennel license.
Why so many dogs, what do you do with them?
That dog will always hunt small things, it's what it was bred for, I would expect to loose birds as long as I own the dog. Are you ok with that?
Also, how old are you? If you are under 18 and/or living under your parents roof, they aint your 5 dogs and it aint your choice what stays and what goes. That's why people move out as soon as they can.
i have 2 full grown dogs and 3 pups. my pups are looking for homes as the people up the road allow their dogs to roam and he got into the yard with my girl. i know the laws around here i have looked them up plenty of times for other people and having gone to college for pre-vet tech. my babies are well taken care of and spoiled rotten. and unless you know the full story and the sitiuation you cant really say anything
