I've seen that dog in my yard twice now, since the last bird was killed, and the last time I saw that dog he was coming right up on one of the chickens that was in plain view from my kitchen window. The dog saw me through the window, and took off like a bat out of hell. I have told my wife that if I am able to catch that dog, I'm going to take a bat to its ribcage. If a bone gets broken, oh well, that will teach the dog.

From someone who is used to dealing with the neighbor's nasty chickens (and the nasty neighbor), let me ask you, WHY DON'T YOU JUST PEN YOUR CHICKENS UP? Why should your neighbor have to deal with your chickens and why should you have to deal with your neighbor's dog? You need to keep your nasty chickens on your own property and your neighbor should do the same with his dog - you can always call animal control to report the dog being on your property. All dogs are to be contained on the owner's property, unless I'm wrong about this. I know all livestock (in your case poultry) should be contained on your property. It's an imposition to have someone's chickens pooping, crowing, and making a general nuisance of themselves on my land, and I wish I had a dog to sic on my neighbor's chickens - there would be nothing he could do if the birds are on my land. Hmmm....maybe I'll get one....

You obviously didn't read this entire thread. As painful as this thread has been, it's time it was closed. The OP said they wanted solutions to the dog/chicken issue and after a gazillion suggestions, now we're back on square one. I feel sorry for the chickens.

Well We got that box wire fence for 120.00 for a 300ft roll and some u nails and steel posts and put a fence up using the trees to keep the chickens from going towards the road, The dogs you have are not the correct breed to imprint on chickens to guard them, try Great Pyranees, two of them will protect everything, even children from coyote, bears or whatever but they do not attack human just bark a scare them with their size.

We did train a pound mutt to leave our chickens alone by using a pump type squirt gun that can shoot 30ft or something
after about a 2 weeks to a month of getting squirted she came around and started guarding the chickens unless, as you say a stray came around to get things started.

You do have the right to shoot stray vicious dogs on your property but you cannot expect to shoot bear even if it it attacking you in your garden the KDFWR apparently wants you to run or lay down and die, so, I have my Great Pyranees, they eat alot but the power goes out too a lot so a burglar alarm won't work as good anyway.
Great Pyranees are the only dog breed known to reliably fight off bear, look for the pictures...

since Transient Tranny doesn't want to follow the advice of posters who say to put up a fence--------my next advice is for the Transient Tranny to hit the dog with his purse and kick it while wearing his high heel shoes.

marmac, honey, you MAY want to lay off the personal attacks. As your mommy used to say, if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all.

Just because I am further responding to this thread does NOT mean I am not listening to what others have said in here. In fact, I think the idea of having Great Pyranees as dogs is a GREAT idea. As is putting up bigger fencing for the chickens.

I'm wondering, does anyone here happen to know where I can get some of that 'stucco' fencing, or whatever it's called? I've read that it has the same honeycomb pattern as chickenwire does, that it is signficantly stronger than the chicken wire. Don't builders use it in the walls of homes or something? I tried calling Lowes and 84 Lumber, and they didn't seem to know anything about it.

Thaaannnkkkssss.

Yes, Revised 2015, KRS 258.235. allows one to kill the offending dog and owners are legally responsible for the damage.
