I need some ideas for a simple goose shelter for my two ladies. They are kept in my barn and have a 10x6 run they go in during the day...they used to be free range, but the fox had other plans. I plan to add an extention to their pen this coming Spring making it 20x6 so theyll have added length for exersize. In the day I worry about them being out in the elements when they are turned out...not that it gets too bad here in the summer but we get some severe thunderstorms, down-pours and high winds et. Im not sure what size shelter I will need to make or what style? They are shy geese, anything too narrow and I dont think theyll go in so something with an open concept would be nice. Im also curious about the flooring of the pen...currently there is no floor to the pen, naturally...but I noticed they are digging holes all throughout the soil and grass looking for worms and bugs...thats great for them but its not my land so I feel I should put some type of flooring down...Im leaning towards using equine rubber stall mats...Anyone done this before or have a different suggestion? Also are there any plants I could put in pots and add to their pen that they could pick at to add a little fun to their pen in the summer months? Obstacles, climbers, toys or water toys? They do have a water tub they like to bathe and swim in Then their indoor stall is very blah, just a plain old square with a water dish, feed dish and pile of hay in the corner...any ideas on how to make their stall more interactive, explorative, cozy or fun?
