    Neighbor's Dogs Killed Entire Flock & Donkey

    Separating Geese

    I want to incubate the first few eggs while its cold out once they begin laying but im hoping they hatch out their own goslings as well. I want them to breed amongst their own breed so im not ending up with different crosses when i go to sell goslings.

    I should also point out the adult flock consists of only 3 hens and one male if that makes a difference. Thank You

    Mixing Young with Adults

    I hatched 12 guineas around September and they have been separated from the adults this whole time. At what age can I mix them into the adult flock? Ild also like to point out I only want to mix the hens into it and sell off the young males.
