Sambat good luck, he looks great! And those are fine looking ladies too!

I don't think Foghorn is having much luck with the ladies. He is simply too heavy,he can't get balanced on the hens who he is smashing like a pancake. Fixing to try my hand at AI.First thing I have to do is build a cage so I'm not chasing his feathered behind all over creation.

I don't think he would be having such a difficult time if he didn't have a bad leg.Never again will I have geese with chickens.

Maybe he just needs a bit of practise?

I'll be getting some Muscovy ducks (pretty soon) and no matter how much we like the ducks, we like the chickens too much to subject them to the filth that water fowl is bound to entail.  They can't help it...it's part of the program but if I couldn't keep them segregated, I'd have NO ducks!

Try soaking his legs in warm water and Epsom salt for like 15 minutes or so

JRNash I've thought about AI but not sure I want to head in that direction. I want birds that reproduce on their own but that doesnt mean Im not willing to do AI to get there....not sure yet
