Maintenance Feeding.......
« on: September 24, 2008, 10:01:42 am »
 Google has let me down!!   I'm trying to find the maintenance feeding levels of over-wintering geese. I have 6 of them,exclusively,on 3/4's of an acre,and currently they're getting 2lbs a day of general 'farm yard bird feed' from Point Vert. They're not putting on weight excessively and I want to keep it that way until February when hopefully they'll start breeding. I know geese are greedy buggers and will eat whatever you put down for them,so can't judge it that way. Any ideas please ? .......... Ree
They don’t join cliques — more times than not, they stand alone — but they recognize and gravitate towards one another. Only warriors understand other warriors.
