    Hello friends! I used this site SO MUCH 5 years ago when I first started out with 27 baby chicks! Now 5 years later (& maybe 150 chickens later) we're now getting a couple geese April 5 also. So once again I'd love to glean some helpful advice from all you intelligent bird raisers so I can have as great of an experience raising geese as I have had raising chickens! After 5 successful years I feel I'm also able to offer some chicken raising advice here & there if anyone needs some so hopefully I can give back to this community that helped me. :) I am happy to report that in 5 years of bunches of chicks & free ranging chickens, that we've not lost 1 to a predator & have not had any sicknesses go through the flock, etc. So far! Blessed indeed! Now,I did look for some Buffs Geese threads but they all seem to be old, can anyone point me to some newer ones maybe? Thank you & good to be back again!

    Bantam flock area on the left. Geese area in the middle and standard chickens in the main coop! We're growing, so much fun!

    That's great! I haven't ventured into the duck world yet bit have jumped straight to the big ones I guess and have a pair of geese coming April 5. I'm very excited! I love my chickens but we're ready for some geese too, we think. Lol.
