would like to know if somone just got a pair of geese what the best would be. I live in Maine so need a hardy breed and can we eat the eggs? I used to have geese when I was young and they used to cuddle up wth us in our lawn chairs. They were great pets. would anyone suggest a particular pair??? I think the snow geese are beautiful but will probably do whatever I can find around here in southern Maine. Do geese get along with chickens and ducks? Also I have read it is better to get 2 hens instead of a male and female??? what do you think?
