OK, so a friend of our who raises chickens and sells eggs got a duckling at the co-op the other day. He couldn't keep it and we were thinking of getting a duck so we took it inow thinking it was a Mallard. Well, it's not a Mallard, its not even a duck! It's a Canadian gosling! Morgan is a sweetheart and my son adores her. I've left messages with California department of fish and wildlife but I haven't heard back. Anyone know if we can keep him/her? I've heard a permit is required but the only permits I've found are for wildlife management not our situation of keeping a goose as a pet. We also heard a goose will protect the chickens and make good watch dogs. But maybe they are too aggressive with strangers? Just trying to do the right thing. Morgan is very young right now and totally dependent on us so she/he isn't going anywhere til we figure this out.
