Don't blame the poor Corgi. His most basic instinct is to herd & when he started to "herd" those chicken, they probably just fussed up a storm & got him all excited.Dang chucks!

I agree with Bev but also have had rescues and free range chickens and have lost about 3 (one with each new dog/rescue). Will reply more tomorrow.

If I remember correctly you have not had him very long. Chasing a chicken would be a powerful temptation and calling him off it without having trained an excellant recal would be impossible. Practice recalls with a long line like a clothes line and great treats. When he is good at that you could try it with the chickens. Until he has a chance to learn it is a no no I would keep him leashed around the chickens. Chasing is a self rewarding activity so you have to make sure he can't do it.
