Well my garden took quite a hit this year, and I think some geese are in order as we really don't want to spray the vegetables for all the nasty little bugs and with the long vining plants, mowing gets more difficult. I want to get baby geese (goslings?) from a hatchery as I want to raise them. So I have some questions and would love any input! What is the best time of year to purchase baby geese? I live in N. PA so it's pretty cold in spring and grass doesn't really start to grow until the end of April. What do you feed baby geese? The breed we are looking at is the American Buff as our area/shelter is a bit smaller so larger geese simply won't fit. Are there any books you would recommend that are kind of a complete guide to geese (from baby to adult, health etc.)? I definitely want to be as prepared as possible so if there are any other pearls of wisdom you could share it would be greatly appreciated.
