    I have a new older Embden and am wondering what she would play with. She is a rescue so not sure about how to introduce that to her. She spends a lot of her time resting in her outside pen, eyes closed, or nibbling grass. She seems content but I don't know if she needs some sort of playfulness in her life~ Am considering getting her a friend......

    A friend would be awesome, I have 61/2 yr old Embden gander and just got him a goose last Aug a year ago and what a difference she has made in his life, they walk together, wash in the pool together and are very attached to each other, it was hard for him to accept her at first because he had been with Muscovy ducks since he hatched but they are a pair now. I do hang heads of cabbage in their yard and they love to nibble on it. I have other play things out there but they aren't interested in them.
