I am a fairly new mom (now into week 7) of two geese and five chickens. I taught first grade last year and was given eggs to incubate. I tried to find the "right" family for my flock, but none were up to par. Now I have them at home. I am wondering if geese and chickens can live happily together and how I can tell the gender of my chickens and two geese. Also, they sleep in my bedroom at night and are outside in the day; they all hate to be outside after dark and bang at the door to come in. How can I train them to sleep outside? I'm currently building a coop, but they won't stay out past sunset. Please help!
