What is the most vicious breed of goose I can buy that will attack racoons and cats and stuff and defend my flock?

    What's wrong with a rooster

      Wtf is a rooster gonna do? My roosters are getting slaughtered out there. I was thinking about a turkey but even they aren't vicious enough, I could imagine a weasel or fox sneaking in to my paddock and that dumb turkey would just sit there and gobble while they take my chickens. I need geese, I've seen geese attack fucking anything. But what's a good goose to have for that?

      OP, if you imprint on the goose it won't fly away.

      Ok so what kind of goose should I get? And I limited to ONLY flying ones?

        A roosters job is to die fighting. A good rooster will be found come morning entangled with the corpse of the predator that tried to chase his girls.

        What you want is a mute swan, but you’ll either have to clip his flight feathers every moult or keep him obese (this is also how you keep Canadian geese down home in the farm).

        A turkey would attack and be enough food for the predator to fuck off.

    ironically enough it's the leaf goose

    from a nation of sks toting timmy hortons snorting maple sucking near pacifists we have the meanest goose in the world and some of the deadliest soldiers ever born

    it's a paradox.

      You cant buy wild, endangered geese. If that was the case I'd get a trumpeter swan, but they cost thousands and you need a permit.
      Plus, all those things fly. Would like something along the lines of a domestic farm goose that doesn't fly?

              Alright well I just double checked, they're 40 bucks apparently but I'm not sure if that listing I just read was even real + they fly. I have Pekin ducks, runner dicks and other non-flyers + chickens. They live in a paddock surrounding a pond in my yard. I can't have Canadian geese they'll just take off.

                Breeds of dog that won't just eat all my fucking birds? Oh right there's none. I need a breed of goose or perhaps maybe a swan.

                Can we post some good goose breeds please?
                I heard tufted roman geese are good "guard" geese, but I'm not sure if that's strictly because they honk and cause a ruckus at the sound of danger opposed to being vicious like a Canadian goose.

                A goose is not going to win in a fight against anything that is killing roosters. They don't weight that much more and don't have anything to actually harm whatever is killing your chickens. A good rooster is just as aggressive as a goose too. A goose will just make a bunch of noise dying.

                Your best bet is to actually develop your property to support more than just chickens. A pair of goats, an LDG, some ducks and a geese hatched together and proper fencing.

                LGDs also proactively prevent predator attacks because of how loud their bark is. If your a fox and hear this thing barking @100-120db every day, maybe you'll go somewhere else.

                I had ~25 birds over 3 years. I have 18 now. I've lost 3 to predators. One from a fledgling hawk at twilight, one to a coon that got run off and never came back and the last to a neighbors puppy. I ate the rest. If you own yard birds you will get used to yearly attrition and by now should be hatching fertilized eggs out to make up for casualties.

                I've seen geese fight off cows, bears, you name it. I don't care about your reasoning, forget everything I've said ITT and just humor me.
                I just want to know some aggressive breeds of geese. Asking for a friend.

        They aren't endangered. I see them all over the place.

        Fuck the government. If a glowie asks, just say you don't own the goose, and it's illegal for you to remove it.

        LIFE PROTIP: The geese and swans at the park are free

      • 4 weeks ago

        Swans will murder all the other birds first, and in most North American countries you can just get a game bird permit to raise wild geese or partridge

        But for domestic geese, my Africans do well

      They can just act so two faced about it because they dehumanize the other party beforehand, can't do wrong when you have the moral high ground.
