Hi everyone, I'm a new owner of two Embden Geese. We've never had geese before, but are enjoying these two very much. I had a few questions about some behavior I'm seeing from them and a few 'care' questions - we want to make sure we do everything right by them! 1. They are supposed to be two females (sisters), but I'm pretty sure one is a male. They are 8 months old and one is much larger - s(he) also always holds her (his) neck above the smaller goose, has a much higher-pitched voice than hers, and walks very upright compared to the smaller goose. I've seen him pin her to the ground a few times as well (she doesn't mind.) He's also acting very protective of her - hissing at us when we get to close to her, always putting his neck over hers, etc. I don't care if he really is a male, but I'm just curious if it sounds like he truly is a male. 2. Assuming he is a male, should we get a few more female geese? I don't want goslings - but I was hoping the two we had were both females as I'd like eggs. Would he be happy with more females? If so, any breeds that you'd recommend to fit in nicely with Embdens? (I'm nervous to get more Embden in case we get another male - I've heard you should only have one male.) I'd ideally like two or three more female geese. 3. They are housed with our two horses and two donkeys in a 2-acre field. They have access to three large rubber-matted stalls with shavings / straw for bedding but they all come in and out as they please. The geese are fully-fledged members of the equine herd (they eat hay together, etc.) it's quite cute. I bought them a small outdoor igloo-type doghouse that they can go in to keep their eggs safe from being stepped on by the horses, but I've yet to see them go in. Anything I can do to help them 'choose' a safe play to lay eggs so they don't get crushed by the equines? 4. We feed them the layer crumbles plus some cracked corn twice a day, as much as they will eat. We also give fresh veggies twice a day (kale, cabbage, dandelion greens, romaine / Greenleaf lettuce, etc.) Is this an appropriate diet for them? Is there anything else you can recommend to give them the best life possible? Thanks in advance - they are such cool animals!
