Has anyone ever heard of a goose as a guard for chickens? It would guard against hawks.
This has been discussed at some length:
Lol !!!! a goose to guard chickens - i think that would be funny to look at !!!
If you raise a single goose with the chickens, and keep it in the same pen/coop at night then they will bond as flock mates and stay together during the day and the goose will help deter flying predators to an extent.
I have a large flock of geese that free range with my ducks and chickens and I rarely have flying predator problems, most likely because of the presence of the geese.
Keep in mind that hawks are fast and sometimes quite bold in spite of the presence of geese, dogs, or even humans.
