    Someone near me has a Sebastopol, probably didn't spell it right, goose for sale near me.
    I don't really want to purchase another goose, so I am wondering if it could live with my 2 ducks.

    It can live with your two ducks, but it's not going to be very happy. Geese are flock animals and they need to have at least one other goose to live with. Two geese really aren't any more work than one, so if you're set on having geese get at least two and it's really not going to be that much more work.

    It's a lot more 5 gallon buckets of water to carry 100 feet for 7 months of the year[​IMG]
