My next door neighbors dogs keep getting on to our property and killing our chickens. Just today they wounded almost all of them and killed at least 3. We are still missing some. Our rooster didn't do anything but run away like a coward, and our other one stood up for his hens but was eventually driven off to our other neighbors house. I am going to be getting geese soon...do you think that would keep the dogs away? Or would I need a bigger breed of bird, like an emu? I live on 8 acres, so there really isn't much I can't have. I have a donkey right now also, but she is normally out in the field, eating grass. She never notices the chickens being attacked. The dogs are about 6 month old lab/pointer mixes. My neighbors want to train them to be hunting dogs, but I don't think that will work out to well, because they cant even train them not to bite people! Ugh, they make me soooo angry. Anyways, sorry for venting, but any suggestions on how to keep my flock safe?
