    I have a grape plant in my backyard that the person who lived here before us planted. It produces rather small grapes, and we hardly ever eat them, so I have started feeding them to my geese, ducks, and chickens. They love them, but I was wondering today if it is okay for them to eat. They seem okay, but I just wanted to be sure. [​IMG]

    The great thing about geese is usually they do not eat what will make them sick (with the exception of bright shiny stones or other trinklets that is too much for their curious minds to avoid). From what I understand fruit is good.

    your grape "vine" is a treat for them. I work part time for a vineyard and all birds love the grapes, especially the wild turkeys..

    Mine also love grapes. My largest gander is tall enough to jump up and pull down apples too. Silly Goose! But lately my turkey has been getting into the trees and sending down apples and pears for the geese and chickens below. I hardly ever see that turkey running around without my fruit in her beak. LOL. All birds love fruit.
