I'm really not sure how to correct it or if it correctable. I found Freckles with another dead guinea yesterday. I assume it was she who buried it in the pasture between the coop and the goat barn. She was got to protect the goats. She is excellent at that. We are not doing so good with the birds though. I saw her kill one guinea. I took away 1 guinea and 1 chicken I saw her dig up in the pasture at different times. I assume she put them there. It is a double edged sword really. I have been leaving her out to roam at night and scare off what ever came and got the other guineas a few months back. No more headless birds. BONUS. She usually just keeps the stupid ones who won't coop up at night in the tree until I put her with the goats in the afternoon and let the rest of the flock out. Assuming she is killing the bird and stashing it, is this something I can correct or once she got the taste it is too late. I REALLY want to hope she is just taking the carcass away from some other would be hunter and not the actual killer but I am sure I am being over optimistic. On the up side, It is only one bird at a time. I have seen her in the yard laying down with the guineas running around and her not bother them. So she isn't a "kill the flock for sport" kinda dog anyway. Finding a balance between chasing off a hawk and NOT OUR guineas / chickens is going to be difficult isn't it? PS I am NOT getting rid of the dog she is EXCELLENT with our goats. If she can't be retrained to be trusted with the birds she will just not be allowed near them.
