    I have never had any waterfowl. I do have 99 laying hens in 2 coops and some hogs. I am considering some geese this year.

    I live in central ohio so geese should be more than hardy enough for my climate.

    Has anyone ordered Matzer's fancy goose package? How many breeds did you get? How many geese did you order?

    I am considering starting with 16 geese. My local feed store is able to get waterfowl starter and grower. The purina brand I believe. (My chicken feed comes from a local mill but they don't make waterfowl mixes)

    How much water will they need since there is no real water on the property.

    Hello, I raises sebbies. Typically I have two ponds that hold 200 gallons, but I also have a clean water source that they cannot get in.
