    I currently got 8 embden goslings and even though I wanna see how things go with these guys, a friend is offering some African geese and I've been thinking about getting Toulouse down the road. I said I'd give it some thought but my main worry is it ok to mix different breeds as adults? Could I just throw them together and they'll be fine or would it be a case of slowly intergrating the two flocks by putting a fence between there pastures?

    I didn't want to start a new thread on the matter but couldn't find a huge deal of info on he matter

    I apologize for no response until now. I think it would be fine to mix different breeds of geese together.

    When introducing adults together you should use a fence first.
