Next year I want to get some geese for meat but I also want some for eggs (I know they don't lay many) so I was thinking of getting four to six geese; four for the table and two for eggs. But I also don't want to have more geese than I can care for. I live on somewhere between a 1/4-1/2 acre (I will confirm when I get home) but I can't free range as there is only a fence on two side. I really want to make sure I can give my geese the best care before they meet the freezer. So here's what I'm thinking; I have some land in the back (will get a picture) and I want to put a spot for the geese towards the back on the right and then fence around with a three foot fence. My questions about this are: - How big of an area do you think I will need to fence off? The space is actually quite a bit bigger than the picture lets on. - Would two x-large dog houses be big enough for the birds? - I plan on putting a kiddy pool in the back sunk down into the ground with some DIY drainage to make it look nice (it will have to because the roomie demands it). - I am thinking of getting Embden geese, would these be good dual purpose birds or would the Toulouse make a better table bird? Thanks for reading!
