        I was watching the ducks when the thing ambushed. My dog was in the house but luckily the door was open so she came running when I started screaming. The thing was gone in a flash so I wasn’t gonna be able to pursue it through the woods myself so the dog was my only hope. She caught the fricking thing luckily, at least he got to die in the arms of his brothers and that disgusting varmint went hungry. The last time I saw it was a couple weeks ago. It was in my yard at like 1am. I let my dog out and was looking out for her to come back inside and I see the fricker standing in the floodlight. I slowly reach for the hammer that’s still right next to the door but then my dog comes out of the dark and attacks the thing was scared shitless and leapt into the air and they ran off into the night. I wish my dog tore its fricking leg off but she definitely got a piece of that fricker. Then we both ran after it down the street through the neighborhood, I’m in my underwear with a sledgehammer. It books it into the forest and right before it disappears I heem the hammer and idk if i hit it or not but it yelped maybe the sound of the hammer hitting the pavement scared it idk and my dog took after it into the trees, I didn’t go after them in bare feet. I waited for like 5 minutes then called my dog back and we went home. Haven’t seen that homosexual since. The dog is an old German shepherd btw

Because he wanted to bury a duck now the fox doesn't eat, he still has no duck, and now only worms and bacteria will eat it. When he could have just let the fox eat instead of basically wasting it because nature not making everything an autotroph makes him cry.

Go watch some nature documentaries that aren't for children and see how nature actually works. If you're not an autotroph you need to obtain your food by killing other shit. Humans do it, every predator does it, but no, a single duck is too far. Shut the frick up, you clown.

    A fox got into my chicken coop and killed 5 chicken in 2 diferent nights, was pissed but prepared a device that would close behind the only possible entry place . A week later my dog star barking so i run down with a pipe and enter the coop (its like a garage) make the fox run around the walls while my dog chase after her and when she is tired i go in for the kill and smash her throat with the pipe, killing it instantly. Altogether the fox got 7 handpicked chickens that i raised with great care and affection. Never got another fox around the property, the smell of its piss was very strong and tok forever to wash my dog that neve touched the fox. Dogs can't out smart a fox, you got to step in a kill the fox, the smell of it corpse will keep others away.

        Correct. If you're raising geese and ducks, you can go without a body of water. Swans have to have one.

      I’ve seen birds come back from utter mutilation. I once had a chicken who got mauled by the butthole neighbor’s dog, I didn’t think it was possible for this thing to live, but I brought it inside and dumped hydrogen peroxide all over it and packed its gaping, bleeding wounds with gobs of neosporin. The leg was not attached to the body, I guess not by bone, the leg was severed and hanging on by a chunk of its thigh, like the whole chicken had been like cut in half, like 3/4ths of the way. Anyway it lived and was fine, other than being completely crippled. The leg and all the wounds healed. The flesh of the leg like, healed back on idk how to describe it, the chicken just has a leg attached to its body by flesh that’s not functional in any way and it limps around like it’s using a a cane. No idea how that fricking thing lived but I wasn’t sure what kind of injuries the duck had. The duck was like seizing up but I wasn’t sure if it was dead and spazzing out or if it was scared and in shock or if it was bleeding out or its neck was broken I had no idea so I wasn’t gonna kill it, what if it was just concussed and seizing out. Either way I don’t think it was conscious, the way it died I think it was already dead and the body was just going through death throes and spasms so I don’t think it suffered necessarily. I hope not. I buried the duck in a deep grave near their shed.

      They are big geese but they are much harder to keep because of the space and water requirements. Ducks and geese live on land just fine even if they prefer to be around water, but swans absolutely need a huge pond or lake to survive. We could probably keep a couple around here but they would probably decimate the pond’s fish population and are quite expensive, usually costing over 10x more than a goose.

      I was thinking about making some battle geese. Feed the geese nothing but ground beef and have them watch footage of ducks being attacked by fox in the wild 24/7. Then put them in a harness like this, except cover the back of the harness in spikes, like poke some nails through the inside so they stick up out the top. Then forge a sharpened steel beak cap to super glue to their bill so their long necks become spears. Would this work?

        This would work for geese vs geese combat, or them vs other avians.
        However avians have hollow bones and they break easily, they are not made for combat,
        We'd need cybernetics to basically enchance and harden their bones, which isn't possible.

        For your purposes a breeding program would have to be performed for a few decades, with the purposes of creating a new breed of battle geese.
        You'd have to select for primarily bone-density, with size, musculature, aggression and overall health being secondary factors. They'd lose all ability to fly, which might not be a negative for a meat-bird.

        Ideally they'd develop talons, and become more raptor-like.

      Turkeys Toms and Embden Ganders would only work as a deterant. If a fox is hungry enough it will usually be able to kill them. If it absolutely needs to be a bird then get a rhea I guess, otherwise you better start getting your trapping gear.

        They’ll actually make everyone within a several mile radius think that. Most of their calls are usually just loud and annoying standard bird stuff, I grew up with them and kinda like those, but there’s a couple in particular that sound exactly like a shrill-voiced lady screaming for help or crying help me. And it carries for literal miles.

          Sometimes due to hormone imbalance a chicken might develop male looking traits. This led people to consider such “unnatural event” the devil’s work as they assumed it was a rooster laying an egg. So the chicken was trialled and sentenced to be burned alive.

          >In 1474 a chicken passing for a rooster laid an egg, and was prosecuted by law in the city of Basel. Now, we are inclined to dismiss the event as fowl play, but in those days lusus naturae was no joke. The animal was sentenced in a solemn judicial proceeding and condemned to be burned alive “for the heinous and unnatural crime of laying an egg.”

          Unless you are looking for a predigreed or trained donkey, the donkey is generally free or will have a nominal rehoming fee, you don’t need a trained donkey, no one has to train a donkey to hate canids. A pole and stick constructed stable with tin siding is about $1500 in materials if you can supply the labor yourself, less if you use salvage materials. In most of the eastern half of the US, 6 acres of pasture is enough you don’t really need to pay for feed for one donkey. Fencing 6 acres is generally under $1000 if you self install, unless you are doing so on difficult ground or you wish for fancy features.
          Medical care for equines is expensive, but euthanasia and replacement is generally pretty cheap. Not to say I recommend doing it cheap and shitty like that, you’ll probably be miserable if you have empathy for animals, equines should not be kept alone and medical care is important.

I’ve seen a goose kick a fox’s fricking ass like I said on Planet Earth. The fox was raiding a goose colony but couldn’t get near any nests to steal a chick so it was searching for unguarded nests because it kept getting beaten up by the parents. Would it not be the same for my yard?

                Animals will always search for the easiest option when it comes to food. They'd much rather find easy prey that doesn't fight back even if they could still kill the animal with relative ease. Geese thrive on this by calling most animal's bluffs through extreme aggression which kind of falls apart when the animal hunting then is desperate enough. Also picrel.

                The idea is you have a fox, coyote, whatever trap setup near your flock all the time and check it at least once every other day. While there are a lot of animals around, predators usually stick to smaller families and don't intermingle that much. Do that, secure your coop, and you can even get a couple of embden ganders if you feel so inclined to ward off the less determined and hawks. As a poultry farmer you have to deal with varmints breaking in and killing some of your flock every now and then, but you can do a lot to minimize it.

        I was thinking about making some battle geese. Feed the geese nothing but ground beef and have them watch footage of ducks being attacked by fox in the wild 24/7. Then put them in a harness like this, except cover the back of the harness in spikes, like poke some nails through the inside so they stick up out the top. Then forge a sharpened steel beak cap to super glue to their bill so their long necks become spears. Would this work?

        Maine coon or Savanah cat that is raised around and lives with the ducks. A Maine coon cannot be outsmarted by a shit head fox, is larger, faster, stronger and will kill it.
