How much water do geese need to breed in?
The very heavy breeds need water, at least 14"-18". The lighter and medium breeds can mate effectively in a puddle or dry land. A wading pool or tub will work just fine. Access to water always improves fertility.
I have 3 ponds and a reservoir on my place and the geese still like to do it in these drums.
lol ok that gives me a great idea of what they need. How do they get in and out? I'd think my geese were too clumsy
Oh they have no problems getting in and out, they climb in and out the backside of the barrel where the dust bed is behind it.
Those barrels are much easer to dump than a kiddy pool
amusing, I asked D. Holderreads one time how much water my Sebastopol Geese needed to breed.
He said, "he had seen them breed with just enough water to get their feet wet.

Quote:I'm currently collecting these barrels for goose nesting, chicken breeder isolation, goat kid warmers, and feed storage. I think I'll get a few more for extra duck and geese pools. I have other water and kiddy pool, and pump my used goose water into the garden, but I'm sure they'd appreciate a few more dunking spots. Love that idea!
