what is the best fowl to keep that can protect itself from predators and is not difficult to keep
Ostrich or emu.
Alligator! 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.
Motion lights, Peacocks, Geese, Jack Russels, Dobbies, Bear traps, Doors?
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.
Can take care of the master too. Wife comes home and Bills gutted in the Ostrich pen..lol
I've read that muscovy ducks are pretty good at taking care of themselves. No personal experience though.
