    If a dog gets into an ostrich pen after newly hatched chicks, can and will the parents kill it?
     

  2. They can... but if they will depends on a lot of factors.
    If the dog has a clear escape route then the chances of an ostrich killing it become much slimmer..

    Your best bet is a secure fence.. depending on the adults to guard and protect every chick from every predator is asking for trouble
