    I wa asked to raise some geese for a lady and she asked me to give her a price. I found an online chart but I am not sure if I am reading it correctly.

    does this mean that a 14 week goose, will weigh 7.10kg (15.2lb) if it eats 28.61kg (63lb) of food?

    thank you

    Yes it does:) Geese and turkeys are heavy feeders!!! I just double checked and that is the correct chart for geese! I definitely need to bookmark that one! Thanks and have a blessed day.
