My bone head of a black lab just mauled my Phoenix rooster. I was lucky I caugh her doing it. I went out to the hen house and somehow my rooster managed to get outside and so did my dog. If I went out 2 minutes later my rooster would be dead. I can't really blame my lab because she has never had experience with birds other than ducks, woodcok, grouse that we hunted. It is her instinct to get the birds for us. Hence the whole retriever thing. Is there a way to train my dog not to eat my chickens but still be able to retrieve birds for us come hunting season?
