Speak of retarded.... This sounds like a knee-jerk from an animal lover that has no real world experience. I love chickens and dogs. As much as I did not want to believe the whole tying the chicken around the dog's neck approach, I was close to it, but we have three dogs. Truth be told.... I don't know how to solve it, but I have worked with "professional trainers". Dogs, and animals in general have strange responses and learning characteristics. I would love to give my dogs the benifit of the doubt and let them live through an easy example. I tried that approach with my rottie mix for almost a year. I tried 5 minutes of leash training outside with rapid fire direction (she is very smart and dominant) and I have never seen her respond so well). Truth be told, she needs to be put in her place, and she yearns for it. She does not want to be beat into submission by all acounts, she just needs pack direction. I have never been abusive with my animals, and I have always wanted to have a sweeter relationship with them then I have now, but animals work on a different level. They have different drives and different goals. It may be sad that chickens died, and it sucked when my dog killed the first, and the last of them. Chickens are retarded. I am amazed they are still around. I have raised them my whole life and am now about 30. My family has raised chickens and will say the same thing. You can have compassion for all living things, but if you put it into context, a chicken would kill you and feed off your childs brains if it tasted good to them and they had a way to do it. That is the true nature of the world. It is a matter of opportunity. Wake up and stop crying into your pillow.
