    First you will need a safe place to enclose them. Safe as in from predators, and away from your other birds. This time of year is breeding season so the geese may be more aggressive towards the other birds. This is the main thing you will need. Feed and water of course. Water deep enough for them to clean their nostrils and eyes.

    Good luck. I love geese. They have become my favorite fowl. Chickens are a gateway animal. [​IMG]

    They seem to be doing well they are in with the other auction animals I think its a male and a female but we aren't sure we are told they are Chinese/African cross any way to tell the white one is the one that checks everything out then the brownish one will follow the white one seems to have a larger hump on his beak.
