    That water is filthy. My geese would be at the door complaining. You need a child's pool, a hose and change it 2xday or they will get eye infections.

    The key to well groomed geese is clean fresh water daily or twice a day through winter. You do need to clean you pool out.

    I also have 2 Toulouse geese that are losing their body feathers not flight feathers. They were hatched 5/15/16 so they are not 3 months old.
    Are they molting ? ?? Or am I doing something wrong?
    They were beautiful and are now starting to look shabby. [​IMG][/IMG]
    The pool pic is before. The lawn pic is now , sorry it's not a better example.
