    What kind of fence would you use to make a corral for a pair of African Geese?

    No climb field fencing is our first choice for large free ranging space.

    Do you want this pen to be a turn out daily pen, or a pen with a secure house it for just nights? The field fencing comes in good lengths for putting up permanent fencing.

    For just fencing to keep them in you can also use t-posts and pallets for an inexpensive route.

    Well, I am picturing closing them in a house or pen at night and in the worst of the snow storms, but I want a winter turn out pen for exercise when it is sunny out side.
    There will only be 2 geese.

    Field fencing would be the the easiest to put up, and will hold up the longest as well. Green T-post would be the quickest to put up with it. Then if you want or need to move it its simple to pull up and move around.

    Thanks for the ideas. What is "field Fence"? I am thinking it is what we call page wire, but I am not sure. Page wire is a fence that we use to keep in sheep that comes is about 300 foot rolls with small blocks at the bottom and get larger as they go up the height of the fence. Is that what field fence looks like?
