Do you think full grown chickens will hurt my small dog

Cute dog, but I think he's more likely to hurt the chickens than they are to hurt him. I would just watch him/her and them and see what happens. Stay close so you can intervene if necessary.

Good luck!

Could go either way.....depends on how well you've trained the dog, which can take a long time.

A large aggresive rooster could seriously hurt a dog that size.

I have a small dog (20lb miniature American Eskimo). She seemed to be fine with my hens, pretty much ignoring them. BUT, for some reason she killed one of my ladies last year. I don't know if she just didn't LIKE her or if she just had a bug up her booty that day, but no more unsupervised yard time for them!
