Beginner Goose raiser/owner no birds yet.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I want to do everything right and wand to buy or preferably build a coop for geese and a run large enough for about 4 geese mainly for Christmas dinner. I wanted to do a goose last Christmas but on my my retired Navy pay it turned out too much for my budget.

This is my plan "B". Raise some EMBDEN  thinking of three male and 1 female goslings. I guess thats the term. goose and gander. I' m hoping you guys and gals will correct any terms and other mistakes. I have looked into e-fowls and may buy from them. I know I need to get a lot of answers so I'll check the FAQ's online. I think I can take a lot of advise from you people on BYC. Thanks in advance. I don't want pets. Benn there done that with my brother-in-law and his kids naming steaks on-the-hoof. This is meant to be strictly meat and my daughter, grandkids and great grandkids will not do that. if raising poultry for food is frowned on in this forum then it is not for me and I'll unsubscribe if you wish. Thanks and I hope I haven't been too blood thirsty for all of you.

Very Respectfully

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Hi Richard and a warm welcome to BYC. Please don't consider unsubscribing!! You are more than at home here- I think it's safe to say we have members across the whole spectrum of keeping small flocks so you won't offend!

Nice to meet you Richard.  Thank you for your time in service.   We have all types of owners here and many do "process" their birds/animals for  meat.  Some areas even have classes  on processing.  I don't have knowledge of geese but,  you can post on the "Goose thread," and ask questions of those who do.  Welcome to Backyard chickens.

Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-
