    There is a picture of an African goose that is leading 4 pekin ducks across the road. The caption says the goose mothers the pekins, and helps them find food. I'm guessing the goose broooded on a pekin nest? LOL

    Question, do both sexes of African goose have the knob on the face? Thanks!!

    Thank you! I learned something new today! At first I thought the goose was a gander. It makes more sense now that she's a hen. Thank you
