    I would like to get my pair of adult geese some buddies. I had been thinking of getting goslings, but then I found this local ad yesterday. Seller is asking $10 each. The link is to the picture from the ad.

    How hard is it to relocate adult geese? How hard would it be to introduce adult geese to my pair? Should I consider buying a few of these geese??

    10 Dollars for adults? [​IMG] That's an excellent deal! I used a dog crate to transport adult birds before with no issues. They're will most likely be some fighting for dominance at first but this will die down. I would defiantly buy a few of those geese. Goslings alone are 8 here

    Thanks for the information! If it is like horses, where they have to figure things out, but will eventually get along, I think I can deal with that. I can always call my vet and have her on standby. lol I have a few dog crates I can use. I was surprised to see the ad at all, since geese ads in my area are few and far between. The geese look really nice to me in that picture. And $10 seemed cheap enough to make it worth the long drive.

    Well, I tried to buy a few of these geese, but the seller has not returned mine or hubby's calls.... I'm guessing he already sold them. :(
