    Hi,
    I have one gander and two girls and they are not breeding. I had the Sebastopols with my American Buffs and the gander paired up with one of the girls. I have now separated the two breeds and the Sebies are not breeding. What can I do?
    Thanks!!

    If the gander can see and hear his 'chosen' mate, he may not breed the Sebastopol geese, The pair bond in geese can be very strong.
