    Hi all,

    My ducklings from Metzer are due next Wednesday. How would I introduce them to Rosie? I know chickens are catatonic when they sleep and you can slip them under the broody hen, but the geese are like the ducks, party all night. I have the brooder all ready if the introductions don't work out, but I'd really like her to raise them. She's been broody for four months and none of the eggs have hatched. Thanks, [​IMG]

    Rosie is a Toulouse goose, 1 year old. Any suggestions anyone?
