Geese. The best guard bird out there.

Recommended Posts

I've been looking into getting geese for meat and home protection.

 

Here are some things I have learned from friends who have geese, and internet research:

They are fairly easy to keep,

They make great guard dogs ;)

you don't have to have a pond,

and they make a delicious dinner!

 

(However, I have not tried goose meat myself)

 

What they need:

a clean bucket of water a day to dunk their heads in/drink from

a kiddie pool for paddling around in,

grass for them to keep trimmed ;)

A fox-proof place to sleep at night,

and some straw for bedding.

 

Geese owners;

Thoughts? Experience? Please share!

for guard purposes.. i learned from the dope dealers we arrested, that the guinea hens are best. at least they are great alarms, geese sheet so much and carry a huge amount of pathogens in their excrement.

Guineas are death on snakes too-I plan on getting a few for my BOL when I get settled.

If you are going to keep poultry and are worried about foxes have a look at http://www.foxlights.com/.

 

We have not had a fox attack since we purchased two lights nearly two years ago.

 

It also pays to keep baiting and shooting them if possible as just by driving them away only gives the problem to someone else.

    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
