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!
