    I have thirty geese and my property is covered in feathers. Any suggestions?

    I suggest a bird feeder. attract other birds that can line their nest with them. I have very few feathers most days as the sparrows and such gather them up and pack them in nest boxes around the property.

    A leaf blower. Use it to blow them into one spot, then rake them up into a bag. When they go through molt, which may be what they are doing, you'll see a big increase in the feathers in the yard.

    make a goose suit, or make wings like Gilligan and jump off the house flapping your arms covered in wings. [​IMG]

    I am waiting for a strong breeze.

    Then the neighbors neighbors neighbors will have feathers everywhere.
