We had a discussion with the neighbor whose dog was killing our chickens. After we convinced him that we would actually kill it and be well within the law, he trained it to a shock collar. Yay! I was having my coffee on the patio this morning when my 14 lb chihuahua mix took off barking toward the chickens. My German and Australian shephard mixes just looked around a bit. Then I heard the chickens flip out and ran down. My chihuahua was running off a COYOTE. Lol. No casualties.
