  4. You will really enjoy them I am sure. Just make sure that, if you get ducklings, they have adequate Niacin in their diet while they are growing. This will help prevent any developmental problems with them. Are your goslings going to be raised by parent geese or are you doing it yourself? If by parent geese your job will pretty much be taken care of by them. Just make sure they have plenty of grazing room and/or a well balanced either Mixed Flock or Water Fowl feed. As for Turkeys, I have never ventured out on that limb.

    Nope I’m doing it all on my own. So yeh right now I have five ducklings four turkeys and three geese in the house. Next week I’m taking the turkeys outside to live. We are going to expand my fenced in backyard so all my birds will have more room to free roam.

    Do you have a pond for the geese? Where did you buy them?

    I have a kiddie pool. Planning on getting another one. I got my geese at a feed supply store in my town.

    Tractor Supply? Or local? I have a TSC nearby but they don't have geese...

    I got my geese at a local feed store. Tractor supply only had chicks and ducklings. And when I asked what kind of ducks they had they said they didn’t know. Kinda frustrating.
