    My MIL brought this goose to me a few weeks ago. Please don't ask me why because I have absolutely NO clue on how to raise a goose. I have no outside birds whatsoever! Lol so now I've had this goose being my shadow for the last 3 weeks and she seems to be doing ok. So now I'm wondering what kind of goose he/she might be. And how do I find out if it's a male or female?

    I have so many questions on how to raise her. And before anyone suggests it, getting another goose is not an option right now. We're not ecstatic about this one, but I've grown attached to her, and she's not going anywhere. She's going to be a house goose, and her "diapers" are being shipped. Lol I plan on taking her everywhere with us like we do our dogs.

    I have no idea what breed you have, but thank you for keeping her and letting he/she call you momma!!! Geese are such fascinating creatures!!!

    Oh my MIL knew I would keep her. I take in all kinds of babies and try to find them good homes, but now she thinks I'm momma so she has to stay! Lol Just curios what she'll look like when she's grown and if there's anything special I need to do to keep her safe and healthy. I've looked online and find he basics but was hoping someone had some little tips and tricks for raising geese other than the general stuff :)

    Also does anyone know who makes the Chicken Diapers? I've ordered 1 from Amazon and it doesn't fit, too small for her but Amazon is giving me the run around since I've put it on her. :/
