    Can you put geese and chickens in the same coop... I want to start getting geese, but I already have 13 full grown layers. Any suggestions, it would be great to not have to build a new coop!

    Thanks,
    Ryan

    i have 2 pair of geese and lots of chickens sharing the same pen. they will make a mess with the water, but they basically eat the same food. the geese will protect themselves for the chickens. they will develop a pecking order with the chickens. keep in mind thou that geese eat a lot of grass and enjoy grazing.
