We have two great pyrenees. They have a large area to run and goats to protect. They get along great with people and kids. However, their favorite past time (while we are not watching) is to play with the chickens, which usually has fatal consequences for the birds, unfortunately. The birds usually are injured/traumatized, but not eaten. For this reason I believe it can't just be all about the breed of the dog. They are very smart and will only do this when we are away. If we are in sight, there could be thirty chickens right next to the dogs (even eating their food) and they just sit there like they don't even know what's going on. But, when no ones looking (to their knowledge, anyway) that's when the action begins.We have seen them doing this, unaware we could see what's going on. For us the best solution has been to remove the dogs from the fenced area to roam free. This, sadly, still does not get to the root of the problem.
