    Ok I had a friend stop by. They had a baby goose with them. Apparently some people had three of them and dropped them off at a local park. This one is the only survivor.

    It's grey with a white poof on it's head. I will not have room for this feller so I will be needing to find someone to take him. I'd rather not call the Humane Society. I'll have a pic tomorrow when it's light out. So a couple questions until then.

    1. Any idea what kind of goose it is by the description?

    2. Anyone in Iowa that would be interested in the feller?

    3. Any other ideas where I could check to find this guy a home?

    Any help would be appreciated

    It might help to put your location in the subject line. [​IMG]

    Possibly a Tufted Roman or Tufted Toulouse. A picture would help a whole lot.

    I'm down in southwest Missouri. If you ever make trips south I'll happily take him [​IMG]

    Heres a Roman Tufted gosling for comparison, maybe try Craigslist for adopting him/her out...

    I put my location in my post plus it is under my user name. This is not where I put this thread. It got moved by the mods which is frustrating. Here is a pic of the gosling.

    I'd reall y like to find it a home. I will not be able to mail but could possibly meet half way some where not too far.

    Oh and I'm not selling it as I have nothing invested. I just want to find it a home as I can not keep it where I am.

    Duck?!? He's huge right now. Maybe it's because I'm used to call ducks.

    Thanks for the info. Hopefully I can find a home for it. Anyone want it in Iowa?
