    I have tried desperately to find my rescue gosling another gosling for company but to no avail so last night I picked up a couple of ducklings the same age and to my surprise they are a little bonded threesome. The gosling chases the dogs and chickens aways from the ducks, preens them and snuggles. I think I ducked out. Pun intended. Now to build a tea pond.

    Cute! I had a gosling and a tiny call ducking brooding together for a while. Talk about the giant and the midget, but they got along great. The call duckling would sit on the gosling's back. [​IMG]

    The goose is Toulouse. Not sure about the ducklings. They might be magpie mix.
