Hi all! We brought home a flock of Pilgrims on Feb 14th. We've kept ducks for a number of years, but geese are new to us. We moved them in a horsetrailer in the evening, and it went pretty smoothly as we transferred them into their 32x20 hoophouse pen. I have no idea who is paired to whom though. I've read some of the very informative threads on this awesome forum abut setting up trios and such, but am wondering, since we don't know who is possibly related, can we leave them in a group this season and let them sort out their breeding dynamics? We plan to move them out to a 1 acre paddock as soon as the snow is gone (in a month?) The breeding season up here should be just about to start, although I'm sure the move to our farm jostled that up a bit- is there a chance they would not lay this year? They are 2-6 years old, and there are 19 geese and 9 ganders. I haven't seen ganders fighting in the group, just lots of "talking" so far. They are definitely used to being a big family. We're not looking to get into exhibition or anything, just continue the utilitarian side of awesome Pilgrim Geese as a grass-based meat source. I appreciate any insights and opinions you might have to share, and THANK YOU!!
