    I'm thinking of raising some geese for the first time...not sure if I should try to hatch some eggs and brood. How long before they hatch? How long do they need to be brooded before they go outside? Is it cost-effective to hatch/brood or is it easier/better to get buy goslings that are a few weeks old?

    Day old goslings is what is usually available. They grow very fast. small brooders will not work long.
