    Hi Everyone,
    All you Embden Goose Experts, please tell me if I have a Goose or a duck? I have had her??? for 6 days, and I thought she was a big duck, but she looks and sounds like a goose. she has blue eyes and I think she honks. Her neck is really long. she is a big girl. she follows me every where. she's really a cool bird. i never had birds before so I need all the help and knowldge you may offer. she appeared in my yard last friday. i feed her and now I have a new pet. She has everything she needs. I've been reading and reading all about ducks for days, and now I think she is a goose....lol..lol..silly me. I'd appreciate y'all knowledge and comments. I want to give her the best life I can give her. She keeps nipping me...we must take care of that...lol..lol...she is starting to let me pet her, which is really cool. I guess she is starting to trust me. thanks

    She's definitely a goose; not a duck. Also, she's used to being someone's pet.

    Are you positive noone is missing her? I'd ask around in the neighborhood and perhaps put up flyers. Geese may walk off and get lost by accident - I'm just thinking of how heartbroken I'd be if I lost my beautiful goose - I'd really want people to try and find me to bring her back home.
