It's not too late. But you have to start with her yard work (basice obedience and whoa training) and then carry it over to the field. The more you allow her to chase now, the more ingrained the behaviour is going to become.

Do you shoot the birds she flushes? If so, you are rewarding this behaviour .... it's time to train her.
