When I bought our 6 geese I thought that they would be able to forage in the front yard and eat the grass and weeds. The problem is that I have to stay with them in order for them to stay there. When I am at work they stay in the backyard with the chickens on about an acre of woods. They always have access to fresh water and grower crumble (they are 2 and 3 months old). I bring them to the farm to go in the pond daily for about an hour. They won't go in the pond unless I go in. I go in a few steps and they stay right there at my feet. I think they would probably go in if I swam out there but that's not happening! What should I do? I can't get anything done because I'm staying out front on the grass so they can eat. They like roaming through the woods and eating/playing in the dirt. Are they getting any nutrition from the stuff in the woods? Do they have to have fields or can they survive on greens and grass I can supplement with their dry food? I'm getting concerned that maybe I don't have the right home for them I start work again in August and won't be able to take them to the pond during the week to play and eat the greens. Any thoughts are greatly appreciated!!
