Alot depends on the type of dog danny. If it's a birder or has wild blood in him it won't work, get another one. That in mind, the safest thing is to get a puppy who was born around chickens.

Those first impressions are hard to break. My son has cats & a snake, so he raises white mice in the garage. Needless to say, the cats & mice play and sleep together when one gets out. They both give the snake room though. :)

You should have tied it around his neck for a day. Worked on my dog.

I wouldn't say THAAAAAAA-at...

But ya do gotta start out with a non-hunting breed, and raise 'em around chickens from a pup.

A chicken's instinct is to run. A dog's instinct is to chase anything that runs. Pretty hard habit to break.

My mutt runs loose with the chickens all the time, even goes in the coop with me to get eggs. Only time she even pays any attention to the chickens is if they get too close while she's eating something, then she'll chase 'em off. I give her Holy Old Billy when I catch her doing that, but she's never hurt one.

Now egg thievin', that's another whole subject...":^(

And chickens are legal to eat--dogs aren't
(although I hear Kelly is working on legislators in her state to change that} LOL

Id suggest you do as I did,, order a flock of Texas log legged whickerbill chickens.They have no fear of dogs,In fact they chase them clean out of their territory .
