    Let's talk goose incubation. I want to hatch either a single buff or a single sebastopol gosling. How would go about it? What is the best incubator for the job? Also when will hatching eggs usually be available? I want a single imprinted goose for a pet. I heard it's nothing comparable to a duck.

    a single goose will be a miserable goose unless you are home 24 hours a day,7 days a week, 365 days a year to be with it always, never leaving it alone.


    Buff is a color not a breed, many breeds come in buff including sebastopols

    I'll just have to wait until I get land then because I can't have 2 geese and a duck living in my house, haha. If you don't mind me asking why is my muscovy content by herself with my attention if a goose wouldn't be? I was under the thought that geese and muscovy were sort of similar. I may not give her 24/7 attention but she gets out of her indoor coop for a couple hours a day to come down stairs, go to the park, swim in the stream, and sleeps on my bed at night. I'm just trying to get as much knowledge as possible.
