we have 6 dogs, one husky that has taken to killing our birds. Now I have spent hundreds on poor Tucker when he cut his head near off doing Lord only knows what, so I hate to shoot him for killing the birds, and the kids love him. The other dogs used to kill our birds as well, my mother told me to tie a dead chicken to thier necks and leave it a week or so. Now moms a bit back woodsy so I thought she was insane of course for telling me to do this, not to mention I found it repulsive. But when all else failed, I tied the dead bird to them. They have never killed another of our birds since. Tucker got out last night and skinned my daughters Rooster, he is alive but looks like he needs roasting, and winter will be chilly for him. My daughter will rig him a coat of sorts Im sure. Tucker was placed in our jail-kennel, its 15x20 and 6' high, so he is not in hell, he just cant run loose like the others. He gets the chicken neckolace when I return home from work, its easier in the winter, less flies. They do learn from this, amazingly, so mom must not be crazy after all. hope it helps. If the dogs arent your's, rule of thumb in the country is NO animal is allowed to kill another persons animal, its harsh, but its sort of an eye for an eye thing, my dogs leave all livestock alone or they leave, one way or another. I know thier instincts, but this is not wild kingdum, and thier well cared for. Good Luck
