Okay, so! I have owned geese in the past, but I've never kept them past a year or so. My yard was also much less "wild" (i.e. grown in) when I owned them. I never had a goose lost to predators, but I used to have terrible problems with foxes taking ducks and chickens. I hear coyotes howling almost every night and have seen red foxes darting across the yard during the day. I made the decision to get chickens again this year, but I decided to make them a roofed, fenced pen and make use of predator-proof chicken tractors rather than letting them free range, because I'm convinced if I let them loose the predators would have a field day. But... now I'm thinking I would really love to have a small flock of geese again... The only thing is, I'm afraid of predators. I fully understand freak predator attacks and losses of birds can happen in any situation, but what I want to know is: are geese reasonably safe from foxes and coyotes if they range in a mostly open, fenced area during the day and are penned at night? Or does the mere fact I hear coyotes/occasionally see foxes mean they would be decimated quickly?
