with my experience with terriers, as soon as they are walking around they have it
The people over the back have two chooks that used to fly into the yard, and as soon as we got Oskar at about 11 weeks of age he was showing interest and wanted to check them out. Its gotten to the point where we have to reinforce our side of the fence as he tries to get into the neighbours yard. He hasn't hurt them as yet but I don't want to wait and see what happens. I reckon they develop their instincts quite early.
Frosty will chase everything if I let her.
She's cornered rabbits, cats, a rat, mice barks at them but won't kill them.
She's dug up crickets and they get damaged - but I guess it's hard for a dog not to when all she has is paws and mouth.
She's been the same from when she was tiny. I have trained her not to chase joggers, bikes, cars etc but sometimes she forgets herself.
