I have a bad feeling one goose is not a good idea. He has his two duck friends, but he has been peeping incessantly all night unless I pick him up. He has warmth, food, and water. Help me please, I want to sleep tonight!

He's actually settled down now...for now. They said to pick out a goose and two ducks, and I couldn't really ask if I could have two geese instead. I think he'd be happier with a friend though. I don't need a lap goose, and I guess if he wants his own kind as a baby he will as an adult. Do male geese fight? I don't know whether he's a male or female LOL

I would guess that its like any other poultry: if they are raised together as babies, then they should get along fine. Unless there is only one female and two males, that could become a problem.

I just hope when I get back to the feedstore they still have some left. Finding a single gosling around here would be just about impossible, but I need to wait until payday.

Goslings seem to like attention and to be held and interacted with more than ducklings. A single gosling will attach itself to you and will want your attention and your attention only.
While this is cute and sweet and endearing, it also can be a pain as it will be like a child all its life. That's fine if you have the time and energy, but a companion goose is a great idea.
The mirror and stuffed animal idea is great, too.

It's surprising how friendly and affectionate they are. They both love to be held and hand fed, and make a different noise when they see me or when I am holding them. Otherwise they almost screech. Tomorrow i'll wear them out by letting them have some swimming time and if the weather is nice they can eat some grass outside.
