Aw man . Can you build them an enclosure? We gave up on free range with the number of eagles we have up by us... It was really easy and cheap to build them a big enclosure. Plus, they get to watch the dogs and the dogs get to watch them and everyone is safe and sound.

wolfy dog Super cute!! She will never chase a chicken; too cute or that
PS: watch that boney ring. Sometimes it gets stuck around the lower jaw and then they can panic.

EliteGSD Thank you all! I did notice that she doesn't seem to even notice the chickens until they run...and then, like mentioned before, "the chase is on." I will try teaching the "leave it" command. Oh, I need to go take some recent pictures of her so you can see!
