    Yes, they can have babies/goslings (what baby geese are called). The goslings will just be mixed breed. :) And :welcome!

    Howdy, and welcome to Backyard chickens! Yep, they can have babies as long as you have a male and female, they will just be mixed, as the above folks said. Have you seen the Geese page? You can get tons of advice if you ever have any other geese questions! https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/47/geese

    My neighbor had a duck that always got up off her egg, she seemed to spend more time with our ducks in our yard than sitting on her own egg. Amazingly, the egg hatched and the duck is alive today (the duck is actually rather annoying and half wild because it was a Khaki Campbell x Mallard cross :lol: ). I think it just depends on the eggs and the broody mama though. :) You may want to go ask more experienced duck folks however, because I don't know too much about ducks.
