Fattening Up Embden Geese

Discussion in 'Geese' started by PineBurrowPeeps, Oct 15, 2009.

  1. I have 4 Embdens that were gotten in early April as day olds.
    I weighed them today and they are only 10 pounds each.
    They are for Christmas dinner.
    They are supposed to go to the processor next month!
    How can I get weight on them fast?

    I've heard whole corn suggested, but I don't really know the answer.

    Quote:Confine them (so they aren't walking off weight) and feed them free choice, regular feed supplemented with cracked corn to bulk them up. you may be surprized at the weight they will gain though a lot of it will be fat.
