A farm wouldn’t be a farm without animals. From sheep to chickens to donkeys, there are a lot of helping paws, claws and hooves at P. Allen Smith’s Garden Home Retreat. In 2009, inspired by a childhood spent on the farm raising and showing livestock and poultry, Allen Smith founded the Heritage Poultry Conservancy, an organization dedicated to the preservation and support of all threatened breeds of domestic poultry. P. Allen Smith is an award-winning designer and lifestyle expert and host of two public television programs, P. Allen Smith’s Garden Home, P. Allen Smith’s Garden to Table and the syndicated 30-minute show P. Allen Smith Gardens.

A short video exploring the feeding habits of our geese. Nutrition is important, of course, but sometimes they just can’t help going for the odd treat..

What do geese REALLY eat? – grass mostly. They are grazers and can get all their nutrients from grassland. (They are not like ducks at all. Ducks dabble and filterfeed through streams and ponds – geese do not, though they do take in a lot of water.)

In winter geese need some additional feed – rolled oats are good but they’ll chew on potatoes, swedes, turnips too. Chicken food is perfectly acceptable – but they just don’t need too much of it and they need more bulk alongside it.

Geese have gizzards – where their food is ground up with small stones. These stones need topping up daily – so if they are not free-ranging you need to supply some rough sand or small gravel.
