    I have a 1 month old African Gray female and a 1 month old Indian Runner ducking that were hatch at the same time in the same incubator and have been friends since then. They go everywhere and do everthing together. When they can't see each other, they freak out and run around calling for each other. They are so attached infact, that they came together. I went to pick up the gosling at the farm, and got the Indian Runner for free. She has a four month old mate, Ron the gander, that I am introducing her to slowly. He is really sweet to her, following her around and gently rubbing his beak on her. I was wondering at what point she would lose interest in Mr. Indian Runner or will I have problems when it comes time to pair her off with Ron the gander? Any experience with something like this?
