Hello,
I have been referring to this site for a few months now for all my goose questions and i have found some very good advice. I started my goose adventure with two geese ( one female white Chinese and one male buff.) As this summer here in the desert was very harsh we lost the male to heat stroke i think. We tried to introduce our female to our chickens but that didn't go over so well. Now she is a loner but she seams to prefer it that way. She is about six months old now and just laid her first egg!!! I didn't think she could at her age. Would it be any good for us to use? and how long will she continue to lay eggs?

Hi :welcome Glad you joined the flock. Sorry to hear you lost your male and it didn't go well introducing her to chickens. I'm afraid I've had no experience of geese apart from some guard geese chasing me when I was a kid!! https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/47/geese Here is the link for the geese section hope you find the answer to your question and good luck in the future :frow

Hello there and welcome to BYC!

Lots of Geese prefer to be "single". And it is best to keep the different species of fowl in their own quarters. Definitely post this question in our Geese section for more help with her. Yorkshire Coop has left you with the link.

Enjoy all your poultry adventures and welcome to our flock!

Well at least you know she is capable of laying eggs. I don't know how early geese start but, the folks on the goose thread will be able to fill you in. Welcome to BYC
