A few months ago, my wife brought home a pair of Pilgrim geese. On Saturday, when I returned from a trip into the city, one of the ganders was missing. The rest of the geese were waddling about as if nothing were wrong. I searched for him—or, more accurately, I was looking for his carcass or at least some stray feathers—but couldn't find him and nothing seemed amiss. As of this morning, he was still missing. I assumed he'd been killed by a predator, because they're basically free range and live down by the pond. I expect losses. Well, when I got home from dropping my son off at school just a few minutes ago, he was back with the group! Came out of nowhere while I was out for an hour. He looks 100% fine. What the heck? Is this something that's typical? I've never raised geese before, so this is a new experience for me.
