My neighbor gave me her geese about a month ago and I am a first time owner of geese.. I own lots of chickens but never a goose. At first I tried to put them in with my chickens but they started attacking the geese, so I put them in my fenced in yard which is mostly dirt and weeds and they seem to be happier. I was also given a showgirl rooster who runs around out there with them... If anyone is in Florida and wants a white showgirl rooster, please get in contact with me. I was told geese dont eat as much as chickens, I give them about 2-3 cups of layers pellets a day and make sure they have fresh water at all times, which is not always easy to do..lol I was thinking of giving them a couple dog houses as shelter, for now they sleep under the overhang of my house. I feel so new to this, but will search the articles but any pointers right off the front would be greatly appreciated. I think they are between 3-5 months old, one is starting to grow a larger bulb, so I am hoping that means I have a pair of each gender.
