Customer Stories and Helpful Advice About Ducks & Geese
Our Weeder Geese
Just wanted to drop a note about the geese I purchased from you.
I have a small garden, (2800 square ft.). I used the geese with great
success! However, a few tips from my experience....
They worked very well in the sweet corn, but they cannot be let loose in
the corn before it is 3 feet tall, because they mistake the small seedlings
Also, plant all of your vegetables in rows, because like electricity, the
geese will take the path of least resistance, and would rather walk up and
down the rows than cross over the plants. This prevents the ground plants
such as zucchini, cukes, squash, watermelons and pumpkins from being trampled.
Ducks should not be allowed into the garden when the plants have flowers,
as they will eat them immediately. No flower, no veggie. After the fruit starts,
the ducks are fine, but they are more useful on the lawn! Greanest, healthyist
lawn on the street, even with this incredibly dry summer.
I had the best garden in town, with the use of fertilizer only at planting, (make
sure it is all gone before you let the birds in) and lime.
The geese and ducks are now as much a part of my gardening as my Troybilt rototiller.
They are also a much loved part of our family. My wife calls them her
Thank you so much for starting us a new healthier way of gardening.
