    [​IMG] My border collie was just out in the yard and killed a tiny wild bird. I am so sad right now. She is so good to the chickens. I just wish there was someway I could save the poor little thing. Poor little guy. [​IMG]

    EDIT: I was so determined to save this little bird I even took it as far as doing bird CPR (using a straw). I didn't work though. Its dead.

    Aww, I'm really sorry. Even my dogs that were great with chickens couldn't resist wild birds. So sorry the little fella passed. [​IMG]

    Our border is fantastic with the chicks and chickens - ducks, geese and turkey.................BUT I cannot get her to stop killing other birds either [​IMG]

    She is encouraged to hunt rabbits, mice, ground squirrels, moles - etc............and I discourage the wild birds but *sigh*
