Our Newest Babies.

Post by Mississippi Momma on Wed Jun 08, 2011 8:44 am

I thought I would share a picture of our new babies. I know we had geese when I was young but I don't remember them being so cute. LOL


I've got to come up with names for them. Of course I need to wait until I know if they're a goose or a gander. Smile

Huey, Lewie and Dewie. Smile They're cute. I've never raised geese and have no idea what they taste like.

Thank you all. I've just fell in love with them. I can sit and listen to the sounds they make for hours. Of course they are in the house with us. Where else? LOL

Sonshine, I don't plan to eat these. I want them to be in the garden and help with grass and weeds. These were gotten to be workers when they grow up. Smile

Do they leave the veggies alone?

I'm told they would probably eat young corn plants but the other veggies they're supposed to leave alone. Any plant that looks like grass they will eat but other plants no. How they know the difference is beyond me but my parents used to keep geese in the cotton field to help control grass and weeds. I'm hoping they'll make good weeders. Smile

Hmm, I may need to look into getting a couple of geese then. How hard are they to take care of? Can they be housed with the chickens?

I hope we have ours raised to try in our garden next spring or maybe our fall garden.

I want to fence in our raised beds an dput them a little house in there. They would live in the garden area then. There's green stuff in there all winter long.

I don't know how they'd do with chickens. When I talk to my Mom I'll ask her if they kept their geese with their chickens but I think they shut the geese up in the barn at night.

I know you aren't suppose to put certain birds together and wasn't sure about geese and chickens. I would appreciate any info you can give on that. Although, I'm not sure Joe would want to have more critters around. Smile

I know what you mean about Hubby not wanting more critters. William says "NO" but after he gives in then he likes them as much as I do. LOL

Most of ours are in one locale so it's not hard to get them tended. We work together in the morning and then he usually takes care of them in the evening while I cook dinner.

I just can't get him to o.k. getting a pig, calf and some goats. I'm looking to fill our freezers but he keeps saying that pigs stink and we've had two goats and they died. The calf...Well he doesn't want me going out to feed one while he's gone because he's afraid the calf will knock me down or I'll fall out there and no one will know until he gets home. He's got a point but I'd really like to raise a calf to go in the freezer. Right now would be a great time to have a calf. It'd make a great lawn mower. LOL

I would love to have a pig, and I don't think Joe would object to it, but I think our neighbors may draw the line on that one. Smile
