From all the comments, it is obvious even some "chicken trained" dogs just can't shake their natural instincts. My two outside dogs are neatly penned up, but when the opputunity arose, they bolted and managed to do a number on some chickens at a residencial home (which also houses turkeys, bunnies, sheep and an annoying rooster that wakes up the neighborhood every day). They were able to move a cinder block and barrel to get to the caged birds. I apologized up and down to the owner (who spat the "F" word at me continually and threatened to kill my dogs) and offered to replace the chickens, which I am. I feel bad, but after reading all the comments about people whose own dogs have killed their own chickens, I don't feel my dogs are "killer dogs" as the irate chicken owner told me. (He told me to get rid of my dogs & I told him to get rid of his rooster that wakes me up every day.) It seems to me that even a domesticated dog still has the natural instincts (some good, some not so good) that dogs have always possessed. Cut the canines some slack-they are animals.
