The Black Mouth Cur is not a small mammal herding breed of dog, they were bred for hunting first.They have a very strong prey drive and will use it. They tend to chase after animals such as chickens, compared to protecting them. The Black Mouthed Cur was bred to herd cattle or sheep, as they have less of a tendency to spook and set off the dogs prey drive. Wandering can be reduced by having your dog spayed/neutered at a year old. If you got your dog as a pup and trained him/her to protect the chickens on your property; they might do alright. It all depends on the level of training and the dog him/her-self.

Do you think a Lab mixed with Cur would be a good smart family dog?

The conditions of a 'family' or 'companion' dog all depend on the family itself. If your family is up for the challenge of a smart, stubborn dog then the mixture is fine. The Black Mouth Cur and the Labrador Retriever both need an average of 2 hours of hard running exercise a day, so as long as the dog's exercise needs are met then he/she can be a great family companion.
