Hello There! We have a flock of 35 chickens, 18 large ducks, and 4 turkeys. WE got started with poultry 2 years ago and have gone nuts. Brutus (a 3 year old chocolate lab) was a stray that showed up about a year ago. He loves our other critters most of the time or puts up with them at other times. At feeding time, he gets so excited and runs around licking the poor chickens, ducks, and turkeys while they are trying to eat. He has strong desire to please us and for the past two weeks he wants to "help" with making sure all of them go inside for the night. And he does a great job with the ducks and chickens. However, the turkeys are scared to death and panic. Tonight we had 3 turkeys out and he put two of them in with great ease. The third one was a fiasco and she was so scared she just kept tryring to run through the fence. Feathers were flying and the dog was not hurting her but trying to guide her. She was doing the damage to herself trying to get away from dog. We need to either get the dog to let us handle the herding and stay out of the way OR we need to work with him so he can herd better. Are there are books or resources that might help us learn how to teach him? Anyone have experience with this or words of wisdom? Thanks in advance for your help!
