    I'm hoping to get a few more ducks next spring. And with them maybe a couple of geese. Here are my questions:

    . If I got geese would they be good protectors for my flock of ducks?
    . Would they bond well with my ducks?
    . What kind of breed would be best?
    . And what genders should I get if I get two geese? Two boys, two girls, or a pair? (I don't want to hatch eggs)

    ~Thanks in advance!

    Quote:1, no. We just lost a duck and goose a few days ago.
    2 yes if they are kept together.
    3, this is our first time, so I don't really know. We have toulouses.
    4 either 2 female or a pair. 2 males might fight.
