    Hi all. I have just ordered toulouse goslings and they should arrive any day. I was wondering, if once they are old enough to venture outside, they could be with our pet bantam cochin hen? She is very sweet and I was wondering if she would given them the broody and loving of a mother goose?

    I would not personally advise it.

    OK and your reasons?

    Your hen will most likely attack them. If they are old enough to go outside then they are probably going to be old enough to be seen as a threat. It might work but it seems like too big of a risk to me.
