    mine are together and doing fine just make sure the chickens have enough room to get away from the geese at first they will bully your chickens

    We also have all of ours running together. We have had no problems.
    We have a kiddie pool for the geese.

    Yup, you can put geese and chickens together. My mother in law got a few geese because they have a reputation for being good 'guard dogs', but because she raised them with her chickens, they acted like chickens.
