We had a dog attack on our property which killed 4 of my ducks and injured a bunch of others to varying degrees. When I arrived on scene, my two Pilgrims (~8 weeks old, male and female) were separated and each guarding part of the total flock. I believe that if they weren't there, there would have been a lot more carnage and I am so proud of them! I definitely didn't choose Pilgrims for their guarding ability... mores BECAUSE they were smaller and quieter. I now have a greater appreciation for the guarding ability of geese however. I was thinking about getting some hatching eggs of some sort of breed so I was open to suggestions. I live kind of in the city so I dont want too loud like Chinese... but maybe a couple African or Toulouse?
