    Black Australian Swan

    I have a healthy 4 year old male Black Australian swan that needs a mate. Do you have a mature female available, reasonably priced? Also open to giving up Gunther to a good forever home where he would be with a female. Price negotiable. Won't ship him so must be within driving distance of San...

    A goose, a myth, a legend, needs a mate! Or maybe not....

    I have a Toulouse goose, which I believe to be female... The latter assumption is thwarted by the fact that as far as I think I know it hasn't layed a single egg! I have had it for some time now, I got a pair of toulouse geese, but while I was away it seems a predator came and snatched one...

    Please help! Goose having problems standing.

    Hello. About two days ago, I came home and found one of our geese laying on the ground being pecked at by a half-blind female turkey. The turkey didn't do any damage (she can't really see so she was missing), but when I picked him up he flapped out of my arms and proceeded to fall forward with...

    Introducing goslings to single goose

    Should i have anything to worry about when introducing goslings to a single african goose? I've read that usually ganders are what to worry about. Also I was thinking that since she is the only goose(4 ducks, 1 goose) that she might readily adopt the babies, but just want to make sure.

    Gander losing weight, pale beak

    I made a post before but it went unnoticed, so I guess I’ll try again. My 7 year old gander has a pale beak and is losing weight. His apatite seems fine, he’s eating a lot his food is digested, no whole bits passing through. No blood in his droppings Droppings are brown and a little watery. I...

    Glinda goose can’t stand up suddenlyI found a recipe for probiotics online and I’ve been feeding her

    Hi there, I checked a lot of the threads before posting this one. A lot of people don’t seem to follow up once they figure out what the issue is so I figured I’d start a new thread about my goose. A few days ago I noticed my four-year-old white rescue American buffet goose cannot seem to stand...

It was entirely my fault, i usually close them up right before sunset, but today i was studying for an important exam and i figured i would do it before dinner instead, my dogs tolerate all the birds in the day, but for some...

    Fowl Arrangement Question (Ducks+Geese)

    Goose mating behaviors

    Ok friends, educate me! What are some of the tell tale signs that geese are ready to mate? Do they do any head bobbing or dancing like the other birds?

    Broken leg?

    I went out about an hour ago to put my chickens, duck, and geese in for the night, and noticed my Toulouse gander was only standing on one leg. The other is hanging behind him. He hops around on his good leg with the help of his wings for support. I haven't seen him move the bad leg at all, but...

    Do your birds lie? I caught mine! Have a laugh!!!

    I have four Chinese Geese and they love to “talk”. On this day (before they had goslings) they would come and “knock” on the back sliding glass door. They arrived 2 days old and were raised in the house. They are not scared to come in the kitchen for a treat. Anyway this video will show my...

    Supposedly yellow eyelid looking red

    As in the photo, the upper eyelid of the left eye looks red. The same goes to the other eye except that it's not as red as on the side in the photo. Is there anything wrong? What should I do?

    Automatic water bowl

    I picked one of these up at a yard sale over the weekend for 0.25!! On paper and in theory, it seems like a wonderful idea! However, common sense and experience is telling me this has potential for disaster with geese and ducks. Sooo....have any of you tried one? Any tips?
