    Hi everyone! Thank you for reading my post! I am very enthusiastic about geese and I have been wanting them for quite a while now and I'm finally ready to get goslings. I want two females, and I am here to be sure I am getting the proper breed I am leaning toward the Pilgrim. I want a goose that is Light weight, decent egg layer, and quiet(as far as geese go haha) but most importantly it must be friendly and have loads personality. I am very excited... I am building a pen that is 14 ft by 14 feet with all of the necessities,for night time. ( food, water and a large Kiddie pool) during the day they will be let out out graze on an acre of grass we have for them. Is this a good set up? And does the pilgrim goose sound like the right one for me?

    Sounds good... but make sure the pen is completely proof against weasels and foxes, as even geese won't be able to fight them off. If you do have to downsize, geese don't need a pool at night.

    Have fun... and enjoy those huge goose eggs!
