    I believe the seeds in apples are not good for them but the fruit should be okay I know a lot of people use geese to clean up their orchards at end of season.

    During peak apple season my seven geese ate at least one 5 gallon bucket full of apples on most days. I never cut or cored the apples. Late in the season the few fermenting apples seemed like a special treat.
