    In the past dogs that were bird shy ( pointing dogs ) were put in the bird cage and learned to eat quail or die.....Steve S

    I have heard stories of people doing this with the pigeon coop..

    Sounds like the OP NOW has a bird crazy dog... Good for you!!! NOW,,, Focus the training, and take advantage of it...

    I would do NOTHING to make the dog bird shy...

    I would just keep them scary arse chickens away from my dog,,,andkeep in the back of my mind, that I now own a body guard for the times one may get loose,,and come squawkin and bitin at my knee caps..

    Damn fool things anyways...

    I'll take Him!!!!

    This thread has made my day!

    It brought back very special memories of my past dog Miss Bailey.

    She LOVED birds..... any birds.... She LOVED to chase a crippled pheasant !!!

    I took a trip to visit a exclusive Upland Hunt club in eastern Colorado to investigate a possible membership.

    I incorporated the trip with a dove hunt, and visited the grounds and talked with the owner that afternoon, after the hunt.
    As I pulled into the Farm Yard, Bailey was ridin Shotgun on the front seat of my truck. I pulled in and parked, and noticed Bailey really focused on something. There were a few chickens loafing around the farm yard..

    I told her I would be right back,, and left her in the truck..

    I spent quite a bit of time visiting with the owner, trying to convey I was a fine outstanding Sportsman, would respected the land and alll the Flora a nd Fawns that existed there.. WE hit it off pretty well.

    He walked me to my truck, as I was leaving..

    He saw Bailey sittin on the front seat,, and said,, "Oh,, You brought your dog! Let me see her!"

    before I could say anything he opened the truck door, and let her out.

    before I knew it,, she had caught 2 of his prised show chickens. 1 hen,, and the prised rooster..

    Bailey immedialtly killed the hen,,, chased the rooster all over the yard with me yellin at her,, then finally caught it and shook the everlivin crap out of it......

    Dead as hell!!!!

    Them was expensive Chickens.....

    I didnt dare ask if I coulds come back and hunt..

    Best foot forward regards,,,

    The dog will learn to stay away, from chickens once you teach it to stay away from chickens, e-collar when your out in the yard. Then leave the chickens out, you sneak inside with remote and watch from the window. Dog learns there are consequences to messing with your yard poultry. Still if a birddog is left out alone in the yard with chickens, even if it has been trained No, chances are he's gonna chase, chances are he's gonna catch and he's gonna kill (they are fragile animals, heart goes a lot ), if your not out there to take the bird away chances are; he's gonna do what we'd do all with a perfectly good chicken eat it . So commands to enforce; Here means Here, No means NO. Then be smart enough not to let a chicken chaser, out in the same yard with poultry unsupervised. Of course I've done OB drills out in the Chicken yard and have people chase the chickens, as distraction to proof basic commands; but I still wouldn't leave even my most trustworthy dog out alone with them. Despite knowing better (she's a bird-dog) if I'm not there she'll chase them, once they kell-over from exhaustion, and I'm not there to deliver to; it would be stupid for her to waste good meat .

    Tie a dead chicken around their neck and all you end up with is feet on a string.

    All I can say is when I used bad language about a Breeder in Utah a few months ago over health issues I was reprimanded and asked to remove my message which I did, and was told by some how wrong it was, some language today fits that bill also, or maybe been a member longer or plain just knows someone.
