    Hi! I'm new to raising chickens and geese. I just moved out to the country so that I could have my horses in my back yard. Once we settled in, I bought three little chicks. They are now two months old. One month ago, I bought four little goslings. Two are Pomeranian Geese and two are White Chinese Geese. I can't tell you whether I'm having more fun with the chickens or the geese lol. I absolutely adore them all!

    I do have a question for those who are experienced with Geese. One little gosling seems to stay away from the others. It seems to be his choice. The others haven't seemed to shun him. He just seems to like being away. Is this normal? Or should I be looking for a problem?

    Thanks in advance for reading this post and offering any suggestions!

    Sorry I can't help with the goose, either. I'm sure if you posted it in the Duck & Geese section, someone with geese knowledge will be sure to help you out!
