    Just what we needed. Nifty you are the best. No to make this truly a waterfowl post and not spam.
    To keep geese can you use a kiddie pool or do you need a pond.

    I use kiddie pools of varying sizes and my Sebastopols do fine in them, but if you have a really heavy breed, like giant dewlap toulous, they really need deeper water to breed successfully.

    I think the kiddie pools are fine as long as you keep them clean.

    We have 3 embdens and use a kiddie pool. We change the water twice a day. So far, it's worked fine. We'll see...
