Had a pair of Toulouse geese for six years, they were the only geese I had, they were quite happy. Last spring the female passed away. The male was so lonely, I called around and found a single 1 year old Buff female. Was encouraged to take home a young mixed male too. Of course the new geese bonded, and though the single Toulouse was dominant all last summer, the tables turned last fall and the new pair is now dominant to him. And he is lonely again. Wanders around by himself. Sad to watch. No one wants the one new pair, and I don't want to have them eaten. Sooooo.... would it work out if I found only a female goose and introduced her to the lonely Toulouse? Thus making two pairs. These geese roam free on our farm. Or am I asking for more trouble? Just want the lonely guy to have a friend. I never knew geese had pecking orders like chickens.
