[RC] guard birds - Karen Clanin

actually, guinea hens and peacocks are great alarms (as are geese), the peacocks particularly make a lot of loud noise at anything out of the ordinary.

keep in mind that dogs can be 'taken care of' if someone really wants where the dog is -- poison laced meat works well unless the dog has been trained not to touch anything outside of its bowl. people have been known to bring a bitch in heat to distract male guard dogs if they really want in -- or want the dog in case of dognappers.

bringing pasture horses up to near the house at night, motion lights as suggested by others and locks on gates. electric fence with a good punch can also be a nice deterent!!!!!!
