Can 5-6 week old gosslings eat chicken layer pellet? Ive just moved my baby geese to the chicken yard since they outgrew there brooder pen. The chickens took to them great and they follow the chickens all around learning the ropes. The chickens have layer pellets and calcium out at all times. Is it ok if the geese eat layer pellets? When I put them up at night, the geese are going into a seperate small pen, but during the day will be free ranging.. Im debating on letting them spend the night in the chicken coop with the rest of the flock.. THe flock consists of about 12 adult hens, 1 rooster, 6 young silkies and 8 pullets around 3 months old. The coop/shed is plenty big enough for all with room to spare.. Oh, and let me not forget the 5 call ducks.. but there not allowed to free range until I clip wings.. Anyway.. about the layer pellets? Thanks.
