My 2 year old dachshund has found a taste for fowl food. He has managed to kill about 13 young chickens in the last 3 weeks. We didn't think it was him at first as the dog is legally blind. But the kids caught him in the act. So... we tried the tying the chicken around the neck and he chewed off the body and left the neck hanging. Then I tied it back on by the feet. Within hours the chicken was chewed off again and only little feet hung on. We don't want to shoot the dog, and hate him being tied up all the time (he escapes his kennel by climbing) So we are trying a new idea. When we let him outside to run (he does stay on our 4 acres) we are muzzling him. He hates it but he'd hate a bullet more. It comes off when he is inside or tied up. This is just being tried today so wish me luck! If he can't bite them, then maybe he can't kill them.
