I am considering getting geese to help act as "guard dogs" for my chickens so they can free range sometimes and I can have some peace of mind. If I get them, should I get eggs, babies, or adults? I have read in some places that it is important that they "imprint" on you so they don't attack you later and that will only happen if you hatch them yourself. I have also read that they imprint fine when they are goslings (which would be cheaper for me than having to buy and incubator along with the eggs). I have also read that it is best for a beginner to buy a trio of adults and only try to raise babies later if so desired. So, I am looking for advice on that. My main question, though, is how to house them. I have read that they need anything from no shelter at all to they need to be locked up totally securely every night, like chickens. Which is it? And, if I do need a goose house and run, how would I get/make such a thing and what elements does it need? Thanks in advance for any thoughts.
