    I don't have them but I've been interested in them. Could you tell me why you like them? How friendly are they? How quiet? Do you happen to know if they would get along with my bantams?

    they get along good with bantam chickens and if there is a predator out side there cage they will make a lot of noise and they are pretty nice but could be mean in breeding season.[​IMG]

    But do NOT keep them with bantam chickens.. or anything in that matter if they are in a pen. They will kill any birds they can catch in a pen. Mine are in a 2 acre pasture with no other birds. I have had them kill Mallards, Cayugas, and full sized chickens..

    I show mine and really enjoy them.

    Quote:You can make the goslings friendly but it is not easy.. Mine are all pretty crazzy wild.. They arent quiet at all.. Expecially the females.. My females make noise all night..

    I mainly like them because they are well.... Awesome looking.. Can fend for themselves.. I feed mine a little but they really dont eat it. They mainly graze.
