    Hi guys! I would love to get a pair of Giant Dewlap Toulouse geese and was wondering if you could tell me how big their pen would need to be. And what kind of "house" would they need for shelter? Anything different about this breed from other geese? Thanx in advance,

    Would they be in the pen full time or allowed free ranging time?

    I've always kept my geese in housing similar to a very large chicken coop.

    They would be in there the majority of the time. I would probably let them out an hour or so during the day. I have an area that is 9X20, would that be enough for a pair? Thanx so much!
