    You might also consider guineas, they make a terrible racket. Or geese, they make good guardians from strange humans from what I've heard.

    Hm, ok. Are they trainable to stay around or follow me in when it's time for bed, or are they free-range only?

    Awh.,...I'm sorry for them :c Guineas never really seemed too tame to me, especially when I was little.
    What kind of roo would be the best for defense though?
