Pigger thanks for the info. Figures I can't make it to my local one. I would love to help wih this. Or stand back and watch...because I have know idea how they do it.
I have never helped yet either but from what I understand the geese are in molt the end of June and can not fly. They just take like sections of fence and round them up in a group. They they blood sex them to determine their sex and age and then stick a band on'em and set them free.
Now I really want to go. That would be cool to see.
