Hi, an update about my new goose who's name is Gretchen but I believe is a gander, who thinks he's a chicken. Gretchen grew up with chickens and the previous owner told me he loved his chickens and she was right about that! He was so sad and missing his other home that I let him stay last night with my chickens.... Well I couldn't believe it!!, he was up in their little hut! It was a sight to see! I think he wanted to get on their roosting perch but he couldn't manage that. I made room so he could sleep on the hay next to them in the hut! My poor chickens didn't know what was going on. Today was a beautiful day, I let "Gretchen" out with everyone. My goose Lucy kept talking to him but he just followed the chickens around. I am so very proud of Lucy, she has not shown any aggression towards him and even tried to walk towards him at the end of the day but she noticed he was freightened of her so she backed away and went on her merry way of eating grass. Tonight I let him in with the chickens again and he hops right in the hut with them but scares them when he tries to get in their faces and tries to Roost with them! I decided to go ahead and put him in the goose house with Lucy and see what happens. I carried him over and opened the goose house door, Lucy stepped aside and gave him room. He cried a bit and wanted to get out of there. My sweet Lucy made what sounded to be soothing sounds and I just knew it would be ok. Quietly I went out to check on them and he was not crying and was quiet. I had been worrying about this but I think it's going well. I didn't want him to get to use to sleeping with the chickens. Merry Christmas everyone!
