    I just turn any new ones loose with the rest, they work things out.

    That is not a Toulouse.. it is an AfricanXToulouse cross.

    Just turn them out together... they will work out fine! Might do some wierd neck motions, but it'll work out... [​IMG]

    an african/tolouse...well thats ok, just needed her to have another goose friend- got him off Craiglist- so he should be fine on the pond then for the nite- poor guy was getting chased around by one of our guineas- but our goose seems ok with him..[​IMG]

    I would try to have him penned up for a day or two.. It would eliminate any potential worry of him leaving.
