I have an african grey...and some chickens. Both my dogs would chase and probably attack the chickens given a chance.
One day I went out for 20 mins and forgot to put the grey in his cage. He was on a tree he plays on. He hardly ever comes down onto the floor. The dogs were loose in the back garden where this tree is. When I came home Elmo the grey was indoors on the arm of the sofa.
Ever since that time the dogs give the chickens a lot of respect! I think Elmo sorted them out good and proper. He has a big beak and a scary squark! I will never know what happened but the dogs totally ignore all birds now.
So all i can suggest to you is expose your new chi (thanks for rescuing him by the way) to a scary bird who will teach him his place!
