    You dont want to get a duck because he will try to mate with the duck & may hurt it (geese have an external sexual organ, ducks do not). If you dont want to risk having any goslings, I would suggest you get another male goose (gander) - It doesnt even have to be another Embden, any breed of goose you'd like would do. I've read on here that having two males is perfectly ok - they only get aggressive towards each other if there is a female involved.
