New Zealand – Repels wild goats, deer, rabbits and hares

I have used Plantskydd successfully to repel wild goats, deer, rabbits and hares on newly planted seedlings. However in New Zealand we have a problem with a bird known as pukeko ( Porphyrio porphyrio melanotus) which is a member of the rail and coot family. The species is protected but quite prolific. It will pull out and eat the lower stems of grassy seedlings and sometime shrub seedlings as well. I can find no evidence anywhere that suggests Plantskydd will work for birds but would be grateful if you could advise if it might work.
