    I'd like to start with Swedish, Cayuga and/or Harlequin if I can find them. Muscovies sound like they can be cool but I'm more attracted to Mallard derived breeds. I may just start out with some at Basin Feed, although they don't know what kind are going to be sent as they ordered a hatchery assortment. [​IMG]
    Unfortunately, I understand!!!! [​IMG] At 35, I've been dealing w/ similar issues for 10-12yrs.

    That is good to know, thank you! I love the look of Chinese geese, but may start with Toulouse, Pilgrim or maybe Embden (although I prefer colored birds) since they are supposedly calmer. BUT I've read Chinese are wonderful foragers and are lighter so maybe more economical [​IMG]

    The older one is a good size, any rooster can do that . I had one who loved one hen so he was always going to her. I moved her out f o r a while.

    Be careful with taking the water away if all the girls are not using the new one, I'd wait a day or so before you take k e it out.
