    Late Feb. I had 6 runnger and 4 Rohins and 3 Canaidan geese disappear over night. Nothing to be found for feathers that would make me think of a predator. Someone joked that they probably followed the geese south. You ever hear of a domestic duck following geese south?

    Not if they are Runners and rouens they can't fly. I'd say either predator with 4 legs or pred with 2. Sorry for your losses.

    Yes, it does not sound good.

    I have keyed locks on the night pen. I reckon raccoons would be deterred by that.

    At least now you know there are some kind of predators to plan for.
