Will geese chase off cats?

My neighbor has about twenty barn cats that are constantly popping in my gardens, around my house, and on anything I leave out like baby strollers, jackets, etc.

I'm also worried that the half starved cats will attack my chickens in the future.

I'm really frustrated!

My first thought was to get a dog that chases cats, but it's hard to know if he will before I buy him. Also he wouldn't be outside all the time.

My question is if geese or ducks will chase cats away. I really don't want geese that will chase me or my kids.

What other animals will keep cats off my property?

Geese are very territorial.
I had a neighbor who had to get a P.O. box - the mailman couldn't enter his yard.

They will chase you and your children unless you train them early enough. They need to understand that it is also your territory.

My dog is legitimately scared of my geese. 2 @ full grown with a teen and a runner duck. If they perceive the cats as threats they'll chase them off. No one messes with geese. A neighbors little mouser slinks by here all the time though not bothering anyone.
