    That will be too tight. The Book of Geese Dave Holderread rec 7.5-10sq ft of floor space per bird.

    So how much square foot do people normally give geese. I know you say 7.5-10 but does everybody do that

    Cheers

    It doesn't matter what everyone does, it matters what everyone should do.

    My goose house measures 77"X52" It was originally for 2 geese then I went and got 2 gosling for my pair which brought it up to 4 geese in this house Which gives my geese 7.32sq ft each. They seem to have plenty of room are not touching each other [geese don't like to touch when sleeping] and I have a back up goose house in case I have to separate my 2 pairs when breeding get under way. If you plan on gosling down the road I'd build as big as you can.
