I have now been safely freeranging my chickens without a loss to predation for several months. I am wondering how old my geese need to be before they can join the chickens and adult muscovy. last year I made the mistake of letting my Muscovy babies freerange before they were old enough to escape predators and lost several quickly when they were discovered as easy prey. My new Muscovy babies and goslings I am being more careful with, but boy those geese are growing fast and eating me out of house and home. I am ready to let them eat more grass, but so far have not let them freerange except when I can be there constantly. I am not afraid to leave my chickens for an hour here or there anymore. Anybody with experience with geese and how old before they can defend themselves? I have a pair of pilgrims, and three Africans, born at the end of May.
