We have chickens & ducks. The ducks have a duck house in the middle of the pond, the chickens free range but have a coop & chicken house we lock up at night. What should we do for the geese? Right now they are just a few weeks old (we have 3 babies). Do they need an enclosed place at night to be safe? I am assuming yes but not sure what. Do they head to bed at night like chicken?

I walk my geese into their house every evening it’s very similar to our chicken coop but hasn’t roosts. And has 3 large windows for air circulation in summer and ventilation in winter. They are susceptible to predators just like any other poultry.

Mine have dog kennels they sleep in at night. Geese are vulnerable despite what they’ll tell you. They really can’t defend themselves so they need to be somewhere safe especially at night.
During the day they need protection too, I have a few trustworthy dogs that keep an eye on them when I’m not.
