    So I posted about having one goose so I'm on the hunt for a companion or two. Can I mix breeds like with chickens? We think this one is a white Chinese goose. Any suggestion on best goose breed? Ours is 3 weeks old with 2 week old ducks. The goose is super friendly, the ducks love the goose but the goose is undecided.

    You can mix if you want to, the goslings won't know the difference.

    From what i have see looks like many people have different breeds together.
    But like chickens and ducks i think it may be wise to keep similar sizes togther.
    I have 2 white chinese goslings . And chinese are the smallest goose in weight. At average 10 lbs
    Some breeds of geese are 25-30 lbs
    So you may want to look at adult size as you choose your other breeds .

    We have a brown Chinese goose and a smaller sized Sebastopol gander. We've hatched two of their eggs so far, the first is about 6 weeks old and the second hatched Friday. So far the goslings are cute, but really what gosling isn't cute, but I'm dying to know what they'll look like at maturity.
