    A few months ago I bought four goslings after doing extensive research and I love them. Two Romans and Two Pomeranians.
    They’re about 3.5 months now, and I’ve been offered two more goslings, which are Chinese. They’re about 1.5-2 months old.
    I’ll be picking them up in a week, and I was wondering if anyone has tips on how to introduce them? I have a large pen for them when I’m not home, but they mostly free-range.

    Divide your pen into two sections so the goslings can live side by side for a while. That way they can get to know each other without the older ones picking on the younger ones. Shouldn’t take them long to get to know each other.

    I agree with Miss Lydia. Since they are different ages and there for different sizes they need to be separated for a while. But so that they can get to know each other in their own space.
