    Yes I have and it works but ive recently seperated them all. I had my two Bennett grey cross with Atkinson asil stags in with my asil cock since they were dove size or so and he would police them ha ha.

    Did you have to break or train them not to?

    I had to teach my bull mastiff not to chase chickens. Now they will wander into her house and all around and she dont pay them no mind. She is excellent at taking down the pesky opossums that try and get my birds.

    He had a problem last year when he was still an adolescent. I had to train/punish him and I think it worked... so far this year he has been perfect.

    All my previous German Shepherds had the same problem. But I was able to get the number down to one chick a month.
