a good rooster will put a puppy in its place right quick.

you will be able to leave the dog alone for many hours, unsupervised.


As long as you continue this live long training you can somewhat trust the dog but if you get lax the dog will resort to its instincts which is to attack a running chicken.  It could even be spurred on by another animal starting the chase.  Very few people are good dog trainers because it takes commitment and endless time.
Never thought I would do it!

This is a dog I call mine but she is owned by Freedom Guide Dogs, a dedicated kennel for raising Seeing Eye dogs.  Although I don’t train dogs I know what to expect from them.  You train a dog to its owner and when the owner is not present it is just another dog.

I've trained dog's to track bear - cougar and coon's and trained them not to eat chicken's. And you said it. You have not ! Oh maybe you read a book so you know it all. And knowing how you want a dog to act is a whole different thing. You can't want a dog to not chase a chicken you have to train him or her not to.

Oh it is really sad to lose an animal like that..Although it is really disheartening to state this yet it needs to be added that the little mute animal must have been taken away by someone or something.Try your best to get it back..

You would be surprised how fast the other dog's learned not to mess with the chicken's. And that was with older dog's it's allot easier when you get a pup.

This is the time of year for broody hens (i've got 4), so there is certainly a chance that she is setting on eggs.  I hope so.
Hawks, foxes, minks all leave a sign...I've been raising chickens for about 5 yrs and only once did I have an unexplained disappearance.  I chalked it up to an owl since she was taken in early evening right before bedtime. 
All the best.

Aliens...you need to make them all little tin foil hats............just sayin'

Scott
"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

So much for dog training. If you have "Golden" Eagles in your area, Keep an eye on any thing small you let out side. Small Kids, Pets, small goats, etc. You know if they can fly off with a young deer???????????
Be Ware. Bald Eagles are not so bad. Hope you find the culprit before it does more damage. :roll: :shock: :shock: don2/aka/ doak

My hens have been out for about 2 months straight now.   I like not having to buy feed for them.  But my dog is out in the back yard with them.   Her pen is side by side with the chicken pen so she grew up with the chickens and this morning before church all the chickens were in there with her.   I think a dog is good to help protect chickens.
