My weanling pied male flew over into the dog yard yesterday and my german shepard had a fancy lunch. That leaves me with a pair of bs and a pr of purple bs weanlings so today I clipped wings and wormed with ivermectin, hoping that they can't get up in the tree by my dog pen anymore. I lose a lot more birds due to my stupidity than other predators, including cars. I have a 7 year old hen that won't stay around the other peas, she seems to like one of my cochin roosters. She has laid eggs and brooded them for the last 2 years , one of which I had no peacock and the other year I never saw the peacock even around her. She free ranges. I plan to try penning her with a peacock this year, when should I do this? Also, has anybody had any luck training a dog that has killed & eaten a pea to leave them alone? If so, how? Thanks for the help.
