right off, I'm going to say sorry if this has already been asked, but on a quick search I didn't see anything right away. I have 10 chickens, 1 of which is a very large rooster, 1 other is likely a rooster, growing fast, but could also be a large dominant hen, only time will tell I guess. I also have 4 guinea keeks, (well one got out today, so will have to see what happens there since I can't seem to catch the fast little ******* by myself) 4 ducklings still in a brooder indoors. 1 indoor outdoor cat, 2 kittens, that havent ventured outdoors yet 2 LARGE dogs. A lab mix, and an english mastiff mix. we are likely moving to a larger farm at the end of august, early september, where we will be adding a meat pig, a couple cows, and at least one goat. The house will likely come with one or two horses, and it also has 2 feral barn cats. so far none of our birds have been allowed to free range, because where we are now, is rather small, and we have a serious hawk/eagle problem. someone told us that at the larger property, the larger animals, and the two big roosters should be plenty to deter the hawks. apparently guineas are crazy fast not only when running from us and the wildlife has a hard time catching them as well. keeping them in a coop or run is not really allowing them to do their job at keeping the bugs under control. but I really don't want to see my egg layers/investments fly away in the talons of a larger bird either. does anyone have any ideas or advice? knowledge here? so far the really big rooster has done a pretty good job of protecting his hens from the lab mix that can't seem to want to leave the birds alone, but there's also always been a chain link fence between them. Thanks in advance.
