    I am debating right now this problem. I already am getting for sure 6 ducks. Now here is the problem. I'm not sure whether to get 2 geese or 3 ducks as my finishing touches on the order. I already have 1 pair of geese. They are loud, annoying, great defenders, and very tame. Part of the reason I was considering getting more geese was so that the young flock wouldn't get pushed around. But the young flock wouldn't be pushed around as much because I am getting all females except for 2 Muscovy males. I'm now thinking another Gander could be a problem.
