My Chicken/Goose Project
If your wondering if the chickens bug my garden; no they don't. Most likely because they have so much room to run around the yard. Nick has about 11 acres so the chickens tend to just free range around that and come back to their pen at night.
I also have 2 geese. They seem to be pretty worthless! I like them tho, that's why their here! They were both free and I think one may be sterile since last year she sat on eggs and none hatched. There a good warning when someones here...geese make some serious noise when someone pulls in the driveway. No they aren't even worth anything for eggs since she doesn't lay very well. I guess I wouldn't like her so much but she was a friends pet and when he died the family brought me her. She is a lovely sweet goose with pretty blue eyes. However her mate is mean; he bites and hisses! If your going to go for the better deal get chickens they're smaller, eat less, take up less space, make more eggs, and make a lot less mess! The geese do mow down the grass nicely tho!
