    Moving Geese from Pond to Lake Side

    Hello! I have three geese that we’re trying to move from a small pond and keep by a lakeside, but they keep trying to return to the pond.

    Calling all free rangers!! Severe thunderstorm!!

    Most of this post will be directed to others that choose to free range, as I'm assuming birds in the coop are safe from this sort of thing. I know there are multiple risks associated with free ranging, and this is just one of the many, but letting my girls roam for the day is what makes me...
