Oh Em Gee my husband is going to kill me. I'm currently on the checkout page at Metzer with 2 pair of buff geese on the line...... I've been wanting geese forever but I just can't convince myself to click confirm! Our yard is 2 acres fenced with a little pond and maybe a bigger one soon if I get the time and energy to go dig it. I was thinking I would keep them in the yard (when they are grown, of course) with my 2 dogs, would they still need a coop? The only thing that could get them would be an owl but I can't imagine one packing off a full grown goose. Would they destroy my grass I'm just getting to grow? I have some 100 gal nursery tubs I raise veggies in, would I kiss those goodbye too? I've got chickens and ducks with turkeys on the way - none of them are allowed in my yard, but I really want some yard geese! We entertain often and it's always outside BBQing - would the geese be horrible pests? (Aside from crapping on my patio ) Basically I'm coming up with every argument my husband could make so I can counter against it!
