Ducks and geese are a lot of fun. We take good care of them. It is gratifying to see them happy. But we found ourselves pretty much homebound. It is hard to leave for a few days for a camping trip. Typical daily chores: letting them out in the morning, feeding, changing water, and closing them up at night. We can probably set something up to provide feed and water for a few days. Perhaps add an automated door to the coop. Don't know if they can be trained to get back in the coop by themselves at night. How do you handle this aspect of poultry keeping? Hire someone when you are gone? Automation? What if we have only geese? Would it be easier because geese are bigger and less prone to predation?
