    Hey Servpolice! Thank you! I didn't know what kind of goose he is. I was told his parents were white. But now I will look up about brown chinese! :) Thanks!!! Joy

    Very cute. There's a ton of info on keeping house geese online and on BYC, I advise you read AS MUCH as you possibly can! Please realize a goose is a social animal and needs much more care and attention than a cat or a dog, even certain parrots. This is a very long commitment you are making, up to 20 years!!! Good luck! Look forward to seeing little Luz grow up

    I guess the one thing I havent read is if you had the permission of the farm to keep the goose?

    A rather intrusive and assumptive question, to which the answer is "yes".

    How is it invasive or assumptive?

    I simply asked a question of the OP as I didn't see that question asked or answered until now ... [​IMG]

    Well, since you asked:

    invasive = I don't know how it directly concerns you. Whatever arrangement I have with the farm is between me and the farmer.
    assumptive = The question seemed to assume that I did not have permission from the farm.

    *** Edited to add: I apologise if my response seems abrasive. Perhaps it was not your intent, but I felt as if I were being attacked and thus responded in defense. Peace.

    Bless your heart for keep him. Please keep us posted with pics. I'm glad he is doing better with the cat. They might be best friends shortly.
