    I have a chance to purchase an American Buff gander and a Tuft Roman goose. Would this make a decent cross-breed? They are very attached to their present owner, so would they attach to me or just attack? In other words, should I get them or just wait to spring and buy some goslings? Any input would be appreciated.

    I guess it would depend on your intentions for them..... are you planning to breed for meat, pets or sale?

    I waited too long to decide.

    Even though it's too late... Here's my two-cents.


    I would've waited fo Goslings, geese are very hard to have as adults if you didn't raise them. (As i'm learning now!) Especially if pulled from a mate/ something they're attached to.
