    My ducklings are almost three weeks now and the feed store is getting some goslings in next week. If I get a couple of goslings and brood them with the ducklings but later put them in their own house on another part of the property will the ducklings and goslings get stressed from being separated or will they not care?

    why would you want to separate them? my goose would be devastated if he couldn't be with his duck family, but there is only 1 of him. ducks and geese get along fine together but you may have problems from a gander and a drake.

    The ducks are going to be confined to the orchard and I was wanting the geese to be able to go all over the property. I would get more than one goose.

    I was just kidding you, but I bet the geese would watch over the ducks if they are raised together.
