    Hello everyone, I've been a long time lurker on BYC, and have finally gotten my ducklings and goslings. My nine Welsh Harlequin ducklings are almost three weeks old, while my five Pilgrim goslings are four days old. They're all currently living in two sectioned off areas of my enclosed porch...

    Male goose pulling female’s feathers.

    We have a set of 6 weeks old Embden geese (male and female) Recently When the female bathes in the pool they have, the male comes over and picks a mouthful of feathers of the female and eats them. He only does this when she is in water. She obviously does not like it. Thoughts?

    Broody Goose safety suggestions?

    I have three Toulouse, two geese and one gander. My sweet goose, Pumpkin, made a beautiful nest under our deck this past week. She kind of made it and then ignored it until the past couple days.

    Hello! Meet Gus & Gil our almost one year old pilgrim ganders. My boyfriend built them a wonderful house that they absolutely hate. He even insulated it so they would be nice and warm in the winter. They spend their days free ranging on our land and they are the funniest to watch. We have an...

    Anyone out there know of any Tula or Steinbacher crosses? I'm pretty sure I've seen a Tula-cross somewhere online although no clue as to the actual lineage or accuracy of what I saw. May have been a Tula-African. I would think Steinbacher crosses would be a bit more common, but I've only found a...
