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

Geese can be difficult to gender ID. Here's a plan. Next spring buy a half a dozen goslings. Let them mature. Your present goose will pick a mate, and then there are 5 more geese to either appreciate or eat. This is what I did with Gus the Goose.

edited to add: don't know if I previously have mentioned this to you, but I had a German Shepherd dog named Rondack.
Nice plan but half a dozen? That's a little more than I have room for.. At least at this moment...

Nice! I like German shepherds....
He was by far the most intelligent dog that I have ever been owned by. After his death I vowed never to have another shepherd - it hurt too much. He was a Belgian strain long haired dog that looked as if he should have originated in the Adirondacks - which gave rise to the name

The behavior sounds like a gander to me. My male is bossy and personable. I've only ever touched the hen when catching her or when she was broody. The gander on the other hand is a ham. He's always in pictures and he'll practically climb into my lap for some gentle pets.

What about vent sexing? I just watched a video of John Metzer vent sexing a bunch of adult geese.
