    Just wondering what is a good age to move my goslings out of the house? My Goslings currently live in my 4 season porch/sunroom,I put them outside in a secure enclosure during the day so they can munch all the grass they want and make a big wet mess with their water then I bring them back in the porch after dinner time....they dont seem to thrilled about coming back in the house and I was wondering when it would be safe for them to move into their outdoor home?

    How old are they?

    Esp in summer, goslings can hold their body temp pretty well by two weeks. I'm a nutjob and still bring my adults in at night, but they file in when I open the back door and have never known any different.

    Your goslings are ready to be outside day and night as long as you have a safe, predator proof pen/goose house that you can secure them in at night:)
