    We have one chicken left from a group that were killed by minks. She has lived on her own for a couple years. A friend has taken in a stray goose. What are the chances that a chicken and goose could become friends? If it IS possible, what is the best way to introduce them?

    Geese pretty much ignore other poultry, except for other waterfowl (like ducks). Different creatures with far different eating habits and behavior. My geese run the place and pretty much ignore all the other livestock as irrelevant.

    I had a Trio of Toulouse geese, 2 male call ducks, and chickens in a pen together. They were totally fine.
