Hi to all,

Okay so the creation of woodpiles, stone piles, leaf litter and other micro-ecologies on the homestead is great for alot of different life forms, but in the Deep South we have some pretty healthy Copperheads, Cottonmouths, Coral Snakes, Pigmy Rattlesnakes and Eastern Rattlesnakes.  How are geese with snakes?  Will they sound the alarm? Will they teach the dogs that snakes are dangerous?  Would a large enough goose or geese in numbers drive one way or try to make a snack out of it?  How about watch-geese pastured with sheep and goats?  Any thoughts or anecdotes?  Any experiences out of Africa or Australia to share?

Zone 9a/9b x 60 inches of rainfall a year.
