Building a Shelter for My Geese

My gaggle of geese now has a large new shelter in their yard.

Currently, I have 18 beautiful geese - Sebastopol geese, Toulouse geese, African geese, Chinese geese, and of course my Pomeranian guard geese. A few months ago, I moved them all into their own enclosure right next to the peafowl and pigeons, where they could have more room to roam. The next step was to build them a proper goose coop. Unlike chickens, most domestic waterfowl tend to sleep on the ground; however, low, sturdy, and shady structures can provide good shade in summer, protection from strong winds in winter, and a safe place to nest and lay eggs.
