Chickens are usually the first kind of bird families raise. Geese are a great choice because they’re beautiful birds that don’t need a lot of upkeep. But can geese and chickens live together?
Chicken and geese can live together well, generally, as long as you take some steps to ensure everyone stays safe and happy.
Space is one of the most important factors in raising geese and chickens together. A good guideline is to have at least 10 sq feet for each bird.It gives the dominant birds space to claim as their own.
If you’re going to keep male birds, then you need enough females to keep them happy. On average, you should expect to keep about eight hens for each rooster you own.
One of the best things about geese is that they can be fiercely protective of their own, including the chickens they live with.
