Our three new minis integrated nicely with the two geese we've had since they were goslings. It's actually pretty cool to watch the five of them follow each other around. Ranaya, our chinese, still thinks of herself as half duck, so half the time she's off with the duck flock. This week or next, I'll be separating the flock into their own breeding areas. At first I had intended to keep Rommy and Ranaya with the utility hens (6 egg layers), a few excess drakes (3, two of which are bantams), and our nonbreeder mini-goose. That puts 9 ducks and 3 geese in an area with the largest amount of space. For the next largest space I had planned on two housing units sharing the same foraging area. The two mini-geese in one house with the runner trio in the other. The bantams are inconsequential - I think. However, the thought of breaking up the small flock of geese tears at my heart. It appears that the two mini geese I plan to breed have paired up. If they have, could I just keep them with Rommy and Ranaya? Rommy seems to like being with then hens more than anything... will that change as breeding season comes? Would I be asking for trouble? If I can't keep all the geese together, how does the division above look? Is it okay to have ducks and geese sharing forage area?
