Beeding geese


Most (occidental) domestic geese are descended from the grey goose, but are no longer migratory birds.
Geese are very social.
They live monogamously; if the mate dies, it is only replaced after a period of mourning.
Waterfowl can reach a biblical age of 40 years! 
During the day they spend most of their time on land, but they definitely need water nearby, to take in food and to care for their plumage.

Care recommendation

  • Group holding
  • Free-range husbandry with extensive running areas:
    for two adult geese min. 400 - 500 m² or combined stable/exercise, stable with 1 m² for 1-2 geese, 120 - 150 cm high fencing of the pasture area. Bedded barn with daylight, 1 m² for 1-2 geese, dry and air-permeable
    Housing systems for young animals in accordance with the later housing system
  • Access to food and water at all times
  • Rest and activity areas
  • Shelter in the open air for protection from sun and rain
  • Swimming and bathing facilities


Substrate and bedding

The underlay and bedding form an extra absorbent base and a heat-insulating buffer.


Top bedding layer

A top bedding layer encourages the goose to build a nest.


Clean watering place, remove goose droppings and wet bedding: daily
Complete renewal of substrate: at least 1-2 times per week
