We Have Geese

This is the latest in our attempt to keep chooks again strategy – guard geese.  The idea is that the geese will chase off some of the daytime predators, so the chooks can be allowed to free range in the daytime.  Our newly lined front dam means we have a place for them, and the island is a “work in progress”, with the idea that they will sleep there safe from predators that are less comfortable swimming. We shall see how it goes.  In the meantime, Xanana and Kirsty are great fun (though a bit noisy) to have around!

    Good luck with that!
    I live in rural WA and have 2 ducks that have free range of the veggie patch, they do a great job with the bugs the chooks cant get because they are in the chook dome. The ducks dont do all the scratching the chooks do, so my newly planted out seedlings dont get destroyed. love your blog Linda… thankyou!
