We are new to having chickens geese and ducks, and are wondering if you should have their beaks trimmed? I have heard it is good to have the chickens done, but I am not so sure about the ducks and geese??

No.
How many chickens are you planning on getting? If you aren't getitng a gazillion and squashing them into a small space, there really isn't a reason to debeak them.

I've never heard of duck and goose debeaking.

Ditto TLWR - No offense to anyone, but no, don't trim their beaks. In a decent environment that is just not called for.
