    Alligator! [​IMG] My turkeys do a good job protecting my chickens from hawks, but, at night, I've even had turks taken before I started locking them up.

    Geese can take care of themselves pretty well but they are still no match for a coyote or large dog. Ostrich can kill a man so you can't go wrong with them if you want a bird that can really take care of itself.

    I've read that muscovy ducks are pretty good at taking care of themselves. No personal experience though.
