I have had chickens for around 3 years now and have never had any trouble with our dogs. They seemed to take our chickens into the family just like they are and they never bothered them. They will lay in the chicken coop with the girls. We recently became a foster parent to a rottweiler (however you spell it) anyway he was 6-8 weeks old when we got him and he has become a very loving puppy. Anyway now when we let him out we have to watch him because he has started to chase the girls and if he corners one he will pluck her feathers so I thought he was playing and scolded him well last night my boys seen him corner and kill one of our girls. We brought her in the house and tried everything but she ended up dying. Now that all of this has taken place is too late to teach him? I called the no-kill shelter where he is registered as being fostered in our home and they said we should bring him down there because most likely he will continue. My middle sons cried and cried last night and I just can't get him to understand. Any advice would be grateful. Our other dogs which are 3 labs, 1 pug, 1 chihuahua, beagle/coon dog and now Blaze the rottweiler. Like I said before none of our other dogs have ever bothered the girls. Please help.
