I have a golden retriever pup who loves to chase chickens as well as eat them! I also have a lab mix long haired collie who is 4 and very obedient and will sleep with the chickens, lol!!! My way of training is to put your dog on leash and go near the chickens and feed them water them and so on!! When the dog shows any sign of wanting to attack chickens you pull on leash and say sternly NO!! Then repeat this everyday until you think he can go in pen without leash and see what will happen! The dog will want to please you and if he knows that he is not allowed to hurt chickens then he will be obedient to your command! It works trust me. Obviously the chickens will have to be outside or somewhere where the dog is able to catch them! When my dog caught the third rooster I was thinking about finding him a new home, much research later, I realized this is the best way to train a dog to be nice to livestock.
