    Nice. A lot of people swear by birds being great "watch dogs".

    You could also get a saddle and ride it around town. Gas is expensive.

    I'll be standing by for the "I drew on an Emu" thread. First it was pit bulls being the spawn of satan, now it will be mean and nasty emu's.

    Geese make great alarms and can be rather ill tempered when someone invades their territory, but emus, that is like going from a 22LR to 44Mag they can really ruin someone’s day.

    Sixto, this is the funniest thing I have read all day! I agree, I too will be waiting on the Emu threads as well!

    Truly though they can be very dangerous birds.

    I've also heard that peacocks are not to be trifled with. Plus they make nice noises and look pretty.

    Emu and peacocks are good alarms and can keep people at bay in their vehicles especially the emu. The downside is they are expensive however guineas are really noisy for anything such as cars, predators, snakes, etc.

    I turkey hunt near a farm that raises peacocks. In the morning they call quite a bit, it sounds like I'm hunting in the jungles of Borneo. It's one of my favorite spots because of the peacocks.

    They shock gobble the Tom's too so it makes it easier for me to move closer to them without having to announce my location. It's really neat to hear. :)
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    The only problem with them is one whack on the neck with a machete, and someone could have one heck of a Sunday after church fried chicken dinner.

    While in Africa, I was told their relative, the Ostrich could kill a lion with it's legs.
