    Never. Never Ever. [​IMG] they sleep on the ground. they don't even like to have to step up to a platform or anything. they like the flat ground.

    Geese cannot even see their own feet [​IMG] They just know they are underneath somewhere. It is hilarious to watch them try to walk "through" things with those feet paddling away, like the water bucket. They remind my of my ex husband who had a belly and couldn't see HIS feet either. He could trip over the trim on carpet.

    The most we did for ours is give them straw in the corner for their bed. They are far to clumsy with those feet of theirs to even attempt to roost.

    Domestic geese do not roost.

    Magpie Geese will spend alot of time on pearches and roosts.
