In the story 'Pig gets stuck' fro the Apple Tree Farm series, Curly escapes from his pen and explores the other animals breakfast. Some of these are geese, but do I say, "Does Curly want the geese's breakfast, the goose's breakfast" or what??

the geese' breakfast!

Geese's breakfast. As it would be children's breakfast (another irregular plural). Or "the breakfast that the geese were planning to have" .

(As this is Pedants' corner, I feel constrained to point out that the word is grammar rather than grammer )
