    Hello! I own a large variety of geese,ducks,chickens and usually turkey's as well.I love to hatch,rear,care for and love my birds!I currently have 8 chickens,2 ducks and 2 geese.I have read many books on care and raising of these birds and would love answering any questions I will do my best!

    So far I have:

    A rooster named Heliotrope named after the flower of October which is a sizzle,polish,1/2 wyandotte and unknown mix along with his brother Dello named after imagination.

    I get very few chicken eggs about 0-2 a day and every once in awhile I'll get a tiny egg like the one in this picture it was only the size of a quarter!

    I have a few small waterers for drinking and one big trough for bathing and all are cleaned every day.

    If it was aggressive I would be creeped out by the little stalkers XD They are like adorable, sweet stalkers!:p Can you touch them? I never really knew if you could pet a tamed goose, let alone hold it. They're probably more than half my sizeXD. My mom wants Pilgrim geese, and it would be nice to have a goose that isn't 20 pounds:p. How do you tell genders? Do the males have the big knob on their nose and the females don't?

    LOL I raised both of them from a day old and never ever let them out of my sight until they were around 2 months old they would follow me around and were the sweetest little stinkers well they still are they just get an attitude with me sometimes and strangers get attacked but I like their michevious ways they are geese and that's what they do.They nip but they don't leave any bite marks or anything so I don't mind they follow me around and do EVERYTHING in the coop with me.Overall I love those two a TON!

    Wow! I LOOOOVE African geese! They're so beautiful! Some time I want to ask my mom if I can get African geese. I can't stand how people see one wild goose that's mean and they blame all the geese:/. But most hand raised geese are sweeties! But I wouldn't let them be mothers, I'd be afraid the babies would be mean once they grew up.
