    Hi everyone, i have a toulouse gander and a roman tufted female, the gander has gotten very testy lately- went after the silkies yesterday, for the second time, breaking into their yard and chasing the blind roos.... any suggestions? they are free range during the day- what size of enclosure do they need if they don't free range? i hate to rehome them this time of year in case someone wants them for their table....

    Quote:so, would the safest plan for him to reinforce the pen he broke? or plan on him and his mate being contained in their own yard?

    Since they are use to free ranging I would reinforce the silkie pen and let them continue to range free. Strange he would be acting that way now, this is about the only time of year my gander is nice to be around, [​IMG]
