    I am wondering how much layer ration a goose needs to eat in one day? I just need to know a number to see how many I can afford to get right now.

    It depends on a lot of factors...in spring and summer, I only suplementally feed my flock...they get most of their sustenance from the yard...it also depends on breed, age, and body condition...I have about 15 chickens right now, and go through 50lbs of feed in three weeks.

    Quote: I don't use layer I use Flock Raiser but For 1 gander and 10 Muscovy ducks and 14 chickens I use 4- 32 oz yogurt containers to feed them thats for 2 goat troughs. I don't know exactly how much my goose eats by himself. Plus they free range and since it's winter I am giving extra greens too.
