We have four pygmy goats who free range in our backyard. We also have a coop in a fenced off area where our chickens, ducks, turkey, and guinnea fowl live. Recently, we had a raccoon attack our coop and kill a few of our silkie chicks. We also have heard that there is a very small chance of coyotes in our area (though, we haven't seen any signs of them). Because of all this, we've been debating getting a dog or donkey to help guard our pygmies and flock. Does anyone here have advice on what is a better option? If a dog, what are the best types of dogs to get? If a donkey - is there a difference between a miniature versus regular sized donkey as a guardian animal? Thanks in advance for your input!
