Raising a single Egyptian Gosling

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello,
I know they're not technically geese, but they're large enough. We recently took in a rescued imprinted Egyptian Gosling. I live in east London and we have 3 dogs. We built him a very secure pen in our back garden and he has a pond. He is somewhere between 4-5 weeks old. At night he sleeps in a pet carrier from pets at home downstairs by himself. We don't have a brooder/lamp for him. Can he be left outside by himself? And if so for how long at a time and in what weather?

I just want to know what I am doing wrong/doing right.

Thanks

He needs a friend.

Thanks! we've been thinking of this since we got him. We want chickens and do you know if they would get along with him or should we wait until he is older?
