    Adopting geese cheaply

    I live in Carrollton, GA 30117. Does anyone have suggestions for adopting geese cheaply? I live on a private 55 acre lake, and built a floating island for waterfowl. I’d prefer to rescue older birds.

    Gander with frostbite! Suggestions for treatment

    Hello all! I rescued a gander a couple of days ago (I think he’s a Chinese x Embden) who seems not to be in the best shape. He’s terribly thin (you can feel his breast bone very easily), and his feathers are in rough shape. Most concerning are his feet: he has small patches of frostbite...

    Need info on goose breeding please

    I'm looking into getting some geese to raise for meat and I was wondering if anyone has any good links or book recommendations. I'm looking more for how to better the geese you already have and what to look for when selecting breeding stock. Would it be similar to selecting chicken stock...

    Sad and lonely goose... Advice please!

    Hi all, I have a year old female (at least, that was what i was told when I got her) Embden goose that I've had for a couple of months now. I purchased her to act as a "guardian" for my small flock of 5 ducks (4 hens and a drake--I didn't expect her to be able to do much, but I was hoping her...

    Hi everyone, We have a American Buff gander who got beat up by our Toulouse-Sebastapol gander. We found our Buff two mornings ago on the other side of their night-time partition with the ducks and our Toulouse-African goose and the Toulouse-Sebastapol gander. He was in the corner, looking like...

    Super Africans VS African Geese

    Is there truly a difference between geese marketed as super african geese and geese marketed as african geese? I was under the impression from some of the hatcheries that super Africans are bigger and stronger than normal Africans but then I also read somewhere that they're the same. So I'm a...

    Most effective way of predator dealing

    We live in a county island, where the surrounding areas are city streets and buildings. When we moved in we had some fox attacks, and I thought being in a county island, there should be only a few foxes, so if I trap and remove all of them, I should be at peace. First one was easy, it fell for...

    ISO Adult Goose

    Hello everyone! I just bought a single goose, and I really want to get him a friend. I’d prefer a medium weight breed, if possible. If anyone knows any breeders that sell adults, or any geese that need homes, please let me know!

    Geese guard

    Hey there! I'm considering having some geese (2 or 3 to start I think will work), since I need some "security help". I've been robbed many times and my old dog didn't hear anything (he's 12 years old). I tried to introduce him a new dog, but he was agressive and than very very sad, so we had to...

    Protecting Your Flock From Predators

    Many of us know that keeping fowl brings predators to our property and they will kill a few or all of them. There are both daytime and nighttime predators so you will need to secure your yard enough that both can't kill your flock. Many of our members will tell you how they protected their...

    Have you ever had a hen attack a bird that was attacking you?

    One of my Speckled Sussex hens, Ruby, is quite the character. She's 4 years old now and is generally a calm, curious, and gentle hen. I was outside snuggling her today and it made me remember last year when she attacked my gander who was attempting to attack me (this was in the spring, when he's...
