Hello all, I have chickens and I've been told that putting a single goose with the chickens helps with predation since the goose will imprint on the chickens and help protect against smaller predators. I wanted to know if that was indeed true, and if so what breed of goose would be best for that? I also have a toddler who loves to go into the chicken coop so I also need to make sure that this breed won't be too aggressive with him. I have had ducks before and they make a horrible mess with the water so I also don't want to deal with that again. Are geese as bad as ducks when it comes to spilling the water all over and mucking it up? Lugging water out to the coop is kind of a pain so I don't want to have to clean out water every day. I don't think the goose would be worth it if I have to do that every day. Thanks in advance for your help with my questions.
