We've done a lot more chickens and turkeys than geese, so now that we're getting going again, I hope you here don't mind filling us in, if you can!
Briefly, our hisotyr is this: We previously had a single Roman Tufted and just loved her. We decided, though, that she needed company. And, dummy us, we came across someone getting rid of a few African geese (actually, we're still not sure if they were African or Chinese-- they were just noisy and not very friendly. . . . .) and thought they'd be perfect. Our Roman Tufted, whom we affectionaly called, Goose-goose, turned to them and soon was not very friendly with us any more.
So, we are currently in this situation: A friend gave us several of her goose eggs (the ones I mentioned in the previous post about goose eggs), and we've now got three little goslings from those growing. We've just found a place where we can get a Roman Tufted male and female gosling for a great price-- and we are sorely tempted. But we are not sure, at this point, if it would be a good idea to intermix these two breeds. We'll be using our other goslings for weeding and probably for the table. The Tufteds we want to keep as weeders and family pets.
Is something like this going to work, or will it be best to keep just a single breed?
Thanks again in advance!
