I am looking for some good ideas for some sort of thing that will act as a sentanal when someone or something is on our property. My dad always said get gese they are protective and easy to care for and will gaurd your stuff to the bitter end and then you can eat them. He grew up on a farm in the deprestion can you tell I have tried to get my husbend to let me get gese he says no, I tried a big dog and we got a pug/chawawa who I love and would trade for nothing but we have over two acres and 30 chickens 10 ducks and our dog that could use some protection from coons and other toothy criters not to mention the owls and turkey vultures and other rafters. we also have trouble with people taking stuff out of our yard. it is very sad when you realize we live in a small comunity and so it must be a neighbor. we live on a switch back road that is a one way road that is the only way in or out so we would hear cars and such. anyway what would be our best bet for a security animal. I need something that is easy for me to handle beucse my husbend will be irate and so I will need to care for it. my shotgun is just getting a bit much to drag around and I missed the racoon last time I shot at one, still trying to live that one down any ideas?
