So after a long argument with the county I moved my portable storage building from the front yard of my 2 acres to behind the house. I had an emergency and flew out for a week, while my friend watched my house. When I returned i found that hawks had killed 8 of my birds, and my 4 ducks and 4 bantam duckwing hens refused to leave the building. I was ordering netting when I got to thinking that I was wanting a goat for my daughter anyway. So I bought a goat and it is now living in the chicken enclosure. It is roughly 50x50 (2500 square feet or so) as a guess. quite a large size, and now I may add another 100 feet of fence which I guess would make it a total of 75x75 foot square. Now my theory is the Hawks are not gonna be thrilled a large mammal is walking around this enclosure and probably has no idea what this goat is. I am also hanging some pie plates, a few plastic bags, and a scarecrow. Anyone have any thoughts or experiance with using livestock to help keep hawks away?
