    a spay bottle or bb gun and try to not let the dog see you everytime he looks at the chicks/chickens in any fashion you deem unsafe pop him a good one. Paint ball guns work also If you use a bb gun I suggest the 23 dollar version from walmart as it cant even puncture a can.

    Do you have a run where you can put them in until they're bigger? Work with your dog - it will take time and consistency.
