    We just got a female goose and female duck for our gander and drake and put them in the same pen at night. Pen is plenty large for all 4 but the drake goes nuts and tries to herd both females and it freaks out the gander. The ducks are Muscovy and geese are emblem (not sure of spelling). We kept the drake out last night and things were alot more peaceful in there. They are out during the day and free to roam the property.

    I have a goose with 20 ducks sleeping together in the same duck house. The goose does not like to go to bed with the ducks, and we have to put him in there every night. He is fine otherwise in the daytime being with the ducks in the same 1 acre pen.
