    Well, I wasn't sure how this was all going to play out. After my Toulouse goose injured herself in the barn to get at the chickens, [​IMG] I moved her and her African mate outside with the ducks and the two Chinese geese who stay with the llama.

    I was worried about that arrangement, too. That was before today.

    The gander was very quiet, until I showed up. Then, he lifted his head in greeting and squawked at me in his loud way. The goose chuckled and as I was feeding the group, I watched them.

    They all got along. They were all good and happy. I gave them grains and hay (they will eat hay) and let them wander around and do goose and duck things. So, I am happy that they are happy. Originally, when I tried to get the pair outside, they seemed unsure, but now that I have ducks and another pair of geese, they're quite happy to be there.
