    I have two german shepherds that are trained not to bother chickens. Having said that, I do not leave them alone with the chickens and I do NOT trust them with my call ducks. German shepherds have very high prey drives. While they leave the chickens alone, I don't trust them to do the same with a call duck in flight.
