So, I connected with the waterfowl rescue in my sig, and drove over an hour across town to meet the lady who runs it to look over some ducks to bring home (which I did.) While I was there, my husband kept ogling up the geese, he loved those big honkers! But I've said from the beginning "no geese". All the geese I've met before have been super ornery. In fact when my mom was in a 2 day labor with my sister we went to walk laps around the lake at a park to encourage her contractions... until a nasty goose came up and nipped her in the butt and chased her all the way back to the car!! LOL Anyway, the crux of it is, the rescue lady caught up a goose she had hand raised, a pretty white chinese, and she laid her neck across my shoulder while I petted her, then I held her mate, a handsome Sebastopol gander who did the same thing. I came home and settled down the new ducks, then spent all night thinking about those geese while I slept!! Suffice it to say... hubby and I are on a push to improve our waterfowl facility now to accommodate them, and I've expressed my serious intention of taking the geese too. I guess what I'm really asking-- do geese have very different needs from ducks? Or will I just feed them the same food as the ducks and expect them to forage a little differently?
