I have a dog I got from a rescue society. I've had her 3 years. She's a yellow lab cross, with all lab characteristics. She has been great and has watched over my chickens for a year, chasing away critters. If I leave the chickens out without leaving her at home, they will be attacked by the fox or bobcat without fail. I have learned this. If I leave the dog home, everything is fine....until just recently. Now, she will grab a chicken and hold it down and pull it's feathers out and eat them! At first I couldn't figure out what was happening, though I suspected as the chosen chicken would be sopping wet and minus a lot of feathers. And then I caught her at it today. I took what little feathers I could find and fed them to her and smacked the **** out of her each time, while yelling at her at the same time. I do not usually hit this dog as I don't believe that is the way to train, but I don't know what else to do. I also put cayenne on some of the feathers. I hope it works. I cannot afford to have a dog that messes with chickens. Her job is to protect them! Has anyone else heard of a dog eating chicken feathers?
