That is a terrible idea - please see this thread for a related discussion: https://www.germanshepherds.com/forum...d-chicken.html

You cannot leave your dogs and chickens roaming free together unsupervised.

Either fence in your chickens or don't leave your dogs out alone with them. They are puppies that need training but even as adults I wouldn't leave them unattended with "prey".

Then your neighbor must have spent some time training his dogs to not kill the chickens.

It's simple- pen the chickens and even then do not leave the dogs outside unattended or they will keep killing your chickens. Puppies have zero ability to fight the urge to say hello to your feathered friends and some never develop that level of control. I wouldn't leave my GSD around chickens and expect them to be alive when I got home you should probably do the same

methinks this is a troll, especially with the number of chicken threads we've had lately!
