    Goose showed up trying to get in our fence, I assumed it heard my ducks and was looking for a friend. , he kept honking to get In. He was just walking around all by himself.
    my runner duck chases her away. And my girl duck doesnt associate with her.
    Thought it was a boy untill she started laying eggs a couple days ago.
    I have been trying to find a mate or friend for her with no luck.
    I only have 2 ducks and they will not socialize with her.
    Any suggestions, I hate seeing her alone.
    :(

    Poor girl :(

    Have you tried your local craigslist? I'm not sure if you do Facebook but usually there is also a local buying and selling group for each area on Facebook. You could also check your state thread here on BYC.

    It should be easy to find a gander for your goose, if you don't care about breeding. Like Pyxis said, local craigslist, facebook, or post on this forum. Whereabouts are you located?

    I am in abbeville. Louisianna.
    I do not have facebook but I am looking at craigslist now.
    She is a Chinese gander, so my next question is does it matter if I get a different kind of goose.

    If she is a she, she's not a gander :) A gander is a male. It doesn't matter what kind, any domestic breed will be able to mate with her to produce offspring.

    Or just be her mate if you don't want goslings just take up her eggs daily when she lays.
    Bless you for taking her in.
