Cracked Corn

Postby flaxin1 » Sun Aug 16, 2015 4:22 pm

Hello, we have 16 Chinese geese that were displaced while our big pond is being renovated in one of our large parks in my town.
They ended up in our Arroyo which runs behind the park. Because they fenced around the renovation the geese needed us to
feed them. They've lived at the park their whole lives so they definitely grew up on bread and crackers and things. Now they
can't really get to the grass very easily, so I along with a few others have been feeding them for about 5 months (there was a cliché
with finishing the renovation, but it will be finished in Spring of 2016) We've been feeding them pellets, either multi, or turkey and
the volunteers including myself are making sure they are fed everyday. They are thriving down in the Arroyo, lot's of water and
friends, some ducks, other species of waterfowl and turtles.

My question is: Can they eat cracked corn? If so, is it just for a treat for them, or can I give them say 4 lbs of pellets and a couple of pounds
of the cracked corn to them? What else can we feed 16 geese?
Thanks in advance,
Newcomer / Hatchling
