    So we have about 50 chickens, ducks, guineas etc and living in the UK there are quite a few predators, mainly domestic dogs. Anyways we have Betty a pit bull cross and two cats who look after the birds. In the past few months between them they have thwarted many attempts from predators including the cats bringing in a weasel and countless rats, whilst Betty has chased off many foxes and even attacked a spaniel who went after her beloved ducks. Also there's always a dead magpie or crow somewhere about the place that the crew have brought in. Has anyone else got any similar stories?
