keeping ducks and geese together

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Just finaly submited my order to Cackle. I got 4 toulouse geese and 6 more ducks, this brings me to 8 ducks. How well will these guys live together? I now have my 2 ducks living with my chickens but once these new chicks are ready to go outside Id like to make a water fowl pen with a kiddy pool in it for them. can ducks and geese live togather? The ducks are all blue sweedish exept one pekin.

I've never had a problem with them together. They lived fine as babies and separated into to their own groups as adults and ignored each other. The geese will come to have a monopoly on food though, so have several feeders available or design some sort of creep feeder.

I have 2 toulouse ganders living with my calls, and mandarins right now. They are fine.

This is good to know, since I figured out yesterday where to build my waterfowl pen.  All of mine will be combined, also.

Good to know here also.   We hope to free range our muscovies and Pilgrim geese but want to build a secured shelter for the nights.

is a 'creep feeder' for feeding creeps?  Like mr. Goose?

Some geese tend to boss ducks around.
Maybe not as babies but when they grow up
they can be territorial.
Something to keep in mind.
