    Brand new to this forum, hoping you all can help answer a question that's been worrying me. We are about to get a shipment of chicks that will eventually be allowed to roam our yard once they're old enough. We live on a lake and from time to time we'll get a flock of geese that hang around the yard for an afternoon and then fly on their way. Does anyone know if their feces are poisonous to chickens? Thanks in advance for your help!

    I doubt it since so many people keep geese and chickens together.

    The chickens won't bother with the goose feces. I have chickens, geese, ducks, and guineas who all free range together at times and the chickens don't bother with the goose feces. They'll be fine.
