    I would like to know whether I should get geese! Do they lay well? Do they eat much? Are they messy?
     
  2. Geese are seasonal layers, 3-4 mos in the spring only laying, if you are lucky 30 eggs depending on the breed. They can be messy they poop a LOT. Depending on if you pen them up or let them free range determins how much bought food they will eat. Geese graze they love grass and will graze on it all day long.
    Whether or not you should get geese is totally up to you. Although where you live and if you have neighbors that might not understand should be taken into consideration, because some breeds are loud all the time and all geese are loud during breeding season.
