    I have 7 chickens and would like to get some geese, Can I putt the geese in with the chickens or do I need to build a new house?
    The chicken house I have is plenty as is use to be my garden shed.

    I keep a pair of brown african geese and a buff african gander and all my ducks(16) in the same coop as the chickens(16 chickens), (my coop is a 10x20), just make sure the chickens have a roost to get up high enough up off the floor so the geese dont run into the chickens and so they dont hit thier heads on the roost bottom (mine have learned to put thier head down when they go under the roost)

    you might want to post pictures of the coop also.

    good luck
