    Hello everyone, I'm in the Fort Collins, CO area! I just recently rescued a beautiful white chinese X embden gander from a local lake. Sadly, someone abandoned this goose and his buddy there. His friend had already died by the time I found him, so I needed to get him out of there, and I did. He's been staying right next to my 8 little runner ducks for the past three days. If you want to see the whole story, here is the original thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/920862/is-this-a-dumped-domestic-goose

    I am unable to take on an extra mouth to feed right now, so I'm looking for someone who can give this guy a good life. Please let me know if you would like to adopt him... I will give him to you for free (I also have a bag of Nutrena All Flock to go with him). He has been a very sweet gander so far, and I'm sure he'll stay that way with the proper care and a knowledgable owner.

    With the help of the goose folks here on BYC, we've been able to take good guesses at his gender, breed, age, and health status:

    -Gender: Male (Gander)
    -Breed: White Chinese, Embden Cross
    -Age: Around 1 year
    -Health Status: Good, he has not shown any signs of illness or injury
    -Temperament: This goose has been very sweet to me, and not aggressive

    I ask that you are experienced in keeping waterfowl (ideally geese) so that you know how to give him a good life. Please contact me. PM is fine or a response to this thread or the original thread.

    I am near FT Fun. We would love to have a gander cross. If you are actively pursuing a home for him, please let me know. I have a big dog carrier to transport. He's going to be dining on the finest, Fehringer Farm Feed.

    Hi cogoose, thanks for your interest, but we already found him a new home a while back.
    I forgot to update this post.

    Great to hear! It is pretty sad to hear about any animal dumped. BUT geese. Geese are special and sometime folks doing the dumping don't realize the animal counts on their people. I'm glad it worked out. Have a good day!
