And goats, to be fair. I went out around dusk to lock up my chickens and heard the geese making their alarm calls. They usually do this when some one walks by so I didn't think anything of it. Until I got up to the fence and saw a ring of geese and goats around the wood pile. The goats were doing their thousand mile stare and the geese had their heads down and wings out just a hissing and honking away. I flashing the light over them and something slender, long and brownish red with a bushy tail went streaking towards the fence line. I think they cornered a fisher! It made me think of the scene from Ice Age with the Dodo birds. Doom on you! Doom on you! I thought some kind of weasel was responsible for slaughtering my bantams this winter, I may have some confirmation now. Just thought I'd share about my awesomely fearless bird/beasts!
