    I can't see building a whole other coop/run for one goose. I'd eat him. [​IMG]

    Aren't egyptian geese one of the rather smaller geese? Something the size of a dog kennel would work great, with a nice kiddy pool in the middle and you could use a dog igloo for a shelter. That is the kind of setup I have for my mandarin ducks, I could probably put 3 more pairs in it because of the size, but I have used the kennel before to house my sebastopol geese when they first came, and it worked fantastic! It was plenty big enough for about 3-4, so I'm sure it would work fine for just one goose.


    I've been meaning to ask someone, how is your male egyptians attitude towards people? I heard they could get pretty mean... but I've been quite curious about them and I think it'd be neat to have one or a pair of them running around over here. [​IMG]

    Redhen, I would definately put some straw in it, because it works nice for the ducks to crawl in and get nice and warm in it.
