Has anyone ever used this for Aerial Predator protection?

    So my flock of 28 is almost old enough to get to free range a bit. I have been looking into some predator prevention.... reflective tape, fake owls, etc... when I stumbled onto this! I was wondering if anyone else has tried it and if it was awesome or not worth anything? It's a motion sensored water sprinkler system.

    Thoughts?

    Thank you in advance!

    We have bear issues and a neighbor said to call the fish and wildlife dept and they would install one of these for free. I would think it would be a good thing to get if they use it.

    Won't it spray your chickens if they get close, too?

    It could if you have it angled to their height. This one has the capability to be angled however you wish. I thought if I angled it up it would hit a hawk. There's videos of it showing it hitting anything from deer to rabbits.

    I think your chicken would be dead long before a diving hawk got wet.
