  •  I thought of getting a peacock. (3+ / 0-)

    With all my outbuildings, it would be no problem building him a nice warm place to stay in winter.  They eat bugs and grubs, I think.  

    Many years ago, my Gordon Setter chased the neighbors' peacock behind their house.  I heard a, "ga-goww, ga-goww, YELP!!" and my dog ran back with his tail between his legs and a big lump rising up between his eyeballs.  If they can handle of a 115 lb. bird dog, they can probably handle the local bald eagles.

    Never meddle in the affairs of cats, for they are subtle and will piss on your computer.--Bruce Graham

      Guineas are very pleasant-sounding - and their nighttime snores are like out of Seus cartoons.  :-)

      •  Now I want one (4+ / 0-)

        They eat ticks and sound like they're out of Doctor Seuss?

        I'm in. I just hope the neighbors don't hate me!

          (farm moved and they were unable to catch them to take with)

          I'd come home after the household had gone to sleep, and the guineas would be asleep up in a tree next to the house with the funniest cartoon noises.  They are African chickens, essentially - some of the best bets for doing away with bugs evah!
