    With a little one in the coop, I want to insure the protien needs are met for the gosling...so I just put gosling food in the feeder. Just until it's time to switch to lower protein; will that hurt my big goose (1 yr).

    Will be grazing as well.

    the higher protein won't hurt your older goose. Especially since he'd probably rather eat grass if it's available to him all the time [​IMG]
