Breaking dog fro chasing chickens

I've just gotten a springer spaniel he is two years old and loves two hunt. my wife has chickens and he heads right for them ;is there any way to train him to leave them alone and still be a good bird dog he has already killed two. also the chickens run free on our place. thanks dave

Sure there are ways to break the dog from killing the chickens. I would look at it in another way. Pen up the chickens and keep them safe from wild life that might want them. While I do believe you could break this dog from killing the chickens I think you would do harm to his hunting by doing it. I saw a man break a golden retriever from getting tame ducks. he never hunted a wild bird again. Good Luck Ron
