So, we're adopting a goose! He's young, and was raised by the sanctuary staff from a gosling, so he's super used to people. He doesn't have a mate, and used to try to escape their waterfowl yard until they took in a flock of four khaki campbells (two male, two female), which he immediately attached himself to. He stays with them all day long, watching over them and herding them into the barn when strangers come into the yard. His good behavior with people and strong natural predisposition to flock guardianship are EXACTLY what we were looking for in a goose, so starting Tuesday, we're doing a trial foster period to see if he'll do as well with our flock of runners (2 males, 7 females) as he did with his khakis. I'm already kind of in love with him, and I really want this to work! Does anyone have any advice for integrating a goose into a duck flock? The sanctuary bird caretaker is coming to my house to help make sure he's settled in, and she seems pretty sure it'll all be fine, but I want to make sure I'm doing all that I can to facilitate my ducks being happy with this goose as well as this goose being happy with my ducks.
