Hi I currently own 3 ducks, 4 chickens, 1 duck is a year old, then the other 2 as well as the chickens are about 8-10 weeks old. Just wondering if it is possible to keep a goose with ducks and chickens. They are in a baby barn that’s about 10x14 feet( maybe a little bigger). And have a covered run that’s about the same size, and I am soon gonna add another 10x20 piece to the run.

What if I added 2 to the flock? Would they get along?

My first year with geese. As they are maturing they are becoming a bit like bullies. I would not want other birds confined with them personally. Mine will occasionally goose and chase chickens, and my ducks, but my birds can get away from them. My geese are in my goat yard. Those are better company for them. Geese also need a larger area, and a place to graze.

I have had geese, turkeys, chickens and even ducks all at the same time. @oldhenlikesdogs is correct in that they need a lot of room. When I had mine, there was no pen and they and all the other poultry got to roam free on a two acre area. They all did fine. I would not try to add geese into as small a pen as your pictures are showing.
