introducing ganders to existing flock

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I've decided since losing, Guillermo, that I'd try introducing one or two ganders to my existing flock.  Santiago, Rosalinda and Dona de La Vega have been together, the way I understand it, all their lives.  How would it be possible to do what I propose?  When would be the appropriate time?

Through a fence where they can see each other but can't touch, when they all seem comfortable (days to weeks) you can introduce them physically. You'll need to watch for bullying!

ok.  I'll try that. Does it matter what time of year it is?

Right now should be fine but the longer you wait and the closer breeding season gets you might hav more trouble because all geese get a little fiesty. Your ganders might even start fighting!
