We have a neighborhood cat that keeps getting my young hens. (less than 18 weeks) We house them fairly secure. No other cat but this one has even looked at them. My question is, I was told in the past that a male pheasant makes a fairly good guardian. Has anyone has success with this? I rally do not want to get a rooster because of the noise. (we are already pushing it with the goats and chickens) I was told that the pheasants are fairly quiet and stay close to where they feel safe, secure and have food. Thanks a bunch ya'all. Have a great day!
