    Farm Security Measures

    Please share some pictures, links, and other informations regarding the security measures you have taken in your farm. this might include electric fences, booby traps, cctv, plants surrounding your lot, lights, etc.

    You can PM me your email address and I can send a short video of one of my tie cord areas. I have a 4' fence around the area with poultry netting on top. It is working against the yotes and coons so far.

    there has been alot of news about rooster thieves in some areas lately. i was thinking along those lines of trigger mechanism fired shotguns, etc. looking for samples to copy.

    Interesting idea, but may not be safe if there are kids in the area :-) Triggering alarms may work too - sets off flashing lights and sirens when intruder enters. problem is dogs and little neighbors kids or stray animals may cause a ruckuss once in a while.

    Good luck, am interested in ideas too.

    I could put a pic of my dad on here. He is my security where my fowl are. He is a 76 year old bitter, hard of hearing old man that just loves confrontation...he walks around the place with a pistol on his hip just like it was 1882 Tombstone Arizona LOL......

    Although it would be nice to shoot someone that is stealing your birds, you may be carefull with that.

    An old boy that raised gamedogs has a thief problem. Like any good hunter/trapper, he figured out where the thieves were entering. He set up a shot gun booby trap and actually shot the guy. He lost everthing because of it. He lost his property, dogs, and I believe did some prison time.

    Infrared Trail Cameras won't stop them, but you will at least see who did it.

    Good luck.

    My problem would be setting up the shtogun. Noone must have told him that the rule was "sss" SHOOT, SHOVEL, and SHUTUP.

    you can put salt rocks in the shell that salt once it hits will sting and feel like they got shot plus it wont kill them.

    I don't think setting up a gun trap is very smart than cost you prison time just get a mean dog and put up a sign

    Why waste salt..... Most thiefs in the area I am in steal to supply their drug habbit. They swap the cock for Shabu, They are walking dead anyway shooting them just speeds up the process.
    I was in Bacolod and saw a theif hanging from a road sign with his throat slit, His body was just conected to his head as a warning to others......

    I have a very good security system in my place including IR cameras and silent alarms, plus a 15 foot hollow block fence all around it.

    Cheers

    Re: Farm Security Measures

    People don't have to climb my high concrete fence to grab my fowl. They can come knock on the front gate. I may have some crossed pullets available to share. If they want a male, I give a chick or a quail sized male for them to grow....chickens, they should not be enough reason to shoot people for, with an AK? Good dogs can be deterrents. Just my thoughts. I am not here to debate with those who chose to use deadly force to protect chickens. Having said that I may have lost 10 roosters to thieves, but shared hundreds, if not more to friends and even strangers....Life is Good!

    Re: Farm Security Measures

    When I was starting out breeding, I shared some fowl with a person whom I just met. He said he followed the wins of my 13 time winner. And he was fixated in buying the cock! This fellow was blind in one eye when he won his 7th, and he just kept on winning some more. Mainly he won clean. One time, we had a party at the farm, a despedida de soltera for my daughter who was getting married, and a "getting to know you" party for the family of the groom. Then this person came wanting to talk chickens! He showed me his ID that he was a police officer, and very apologetic that he was crashing the party. He explained that he really wanted to buy the rooster, IF HE COULD AFFORD IT! But what price can I ask for such an ace? I gave the rooster for free. He could not believe his luck. Very thankful, he said his cousin who was an artist gave him a painting but he was not into art. He sent the painting to me later. It was by a National Artist worth so much!!!

    Farm security? The friendship you develop in the place where you have your farm would be the best security you can have. The highest fences, the biggest calibers, they can be deterrents, but they can also land you in jail, or worse, make lifetime enemies. Sharing your fowl will make friendships that last a lifetime... Just my opinion. Others may have other thoughts. By the way, I also shoot straight, but mainly paper and steel targets... Cheers!

    For dogs by all means the Anatolian Shepherd is the way to go, a lot better than the great pyrenese.

    This is what you call a "watch dog". He sits and watches you eat!
