    Its was nice out so I let the 7 cotton patch goslings loose in the vegetable garden (which is fenced off from the chickens and ducks) they found the few clumps of grass then they discovered the purple cabbage and really like it. Is that healthy for geese? can they help themselves to it safely? they can only reach the outer leaves.

    lol after years working in a daycare and changing crayola diapers nothing surprises me.

    As long as the cabbage is safe nutritionally and wont make them sick I am glad, this is my first year growing purple cabbage and we are up to our ears in it, turns out it starts a lot easier than other plants.
