    Goose attacked by dog

    My goose was attacked by the neighbours dog today and lost about 1.5cm of beak. I have put antiseptic on the beak, and washed it out (it was bleeding quite a lot). The vet that deals with geese is not working right now, or probably for at least a couple of more days. What should I do? Do beaks...

    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...

    HELP! Sick gosling?

    So recently I’ve purchased two goslings at my nearest Atwoods probably a week or so ago on the same day . The employees did not specify or know how old they were but looked to be a few days I assume. I bought a African Chinese swan and a regular white Chinese swan goose. A few days went by and...

    First incubator

    Hi all, I love reading about and seeing your girls (and guys)! We have had chickens, ducks and geese for several years now, and previously to expand our flock we would let nature take its course. Last year we acquired some Mandarin ducks, and would like to begin some focused breeding of them...

    Female goose limping!

    Yesterday morning I noticed my female pilgrim goose of about 4-5 months was limping slightly on her left leg when she got out of the hutch in the morning. Over the day she was sitting down more, I couldn’t find any cuts or anything wrapped around the foot and I thought it might get better...

    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...

    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...

    Noisy male goose

    Hello everyone! I had a quick question regarding my gander. He currently lives with one male duck. Anytime I’m outside and then leave, the goose starts screaming his head off for the next ten minutes. Im not sure if he’s upset that I’m leaving, or what. Would having another male goose with him...

He's managed to moult both his primaries and secondaries but the rest of his plumage is really scruffy and not waterproof. I'm...

    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...
