    Hi

    In February I'm getting two baby goslings.

    I was wondering if they can stay in the coop with the chickens.

    I have a little house for them if they can't be with the chickens.

    I just thought it would be nice if they all got on

    Thanks :)

    Hi Pandapaws

    Were your geese young when they first met your chickens?

    My chickens are apprx 18 months old now, I have 6 chicks.

    I have never seen any of them displaying any form of aggression to each other.

    I have just had one chick in isolation for 2 weeks and I just put her in the run today with the other chick, they all made a fuss of her, it was like they were welcoming her back, they are so laid back lol

    Thanks again hun
