We have one lonely goose (Elvis by name) and he is the only survivor of his flock. We got him for free when the rest were taken, one per nigh, until he was locked up safe. He lives with the PBPs right now and he is head and shoulders taller than they are lol. Having just gotten him three goslings, when can they get together with the adult goose? And how long do they need heat for? They are loose with the chickens right now and the crippled hen sure is enjoying the heat lamp lol and the silkie chicks, despite having a broody hen mother, also cuddle up under it. The goslings only use it at night right now but as its still in the low 80s by day, I guess they dont feel the need for extra.
