I have 3 lovely geese: one boy two girls. The girl set on some eggs and they have hatched. In this pen are many mallards and two pekens *sp along with the geese. I have a kiddie pool for them to swim in. The babies cannot reach it yet though and this is the main water source in the pen. If I put waterers out they just clean their beaks and waste the water until there's none left in the waterer which could be several times a day. I HAD to put a waterer in there for the two babies cuz they can't reach the kiddie pool to swim or get a drink. Now the others are getting into this baby waterer and running out the water. I HATE the idea of taking the babies away from their mother cuz I want this to be a positive experience for the geese so they will want to do it again next year. Also the fence is big enough to where the babies can walk through the holes and out into the yard which worries me. And my daughter has seen this happen today. Any advice?
