    We already have a pair of Chinese geese. They are each about a year old and live out on there pond. We just bought two female Africans, a pair of peking ducks, and a male buff. We will raise the new guys inside until they are big enough to go the pond.

    How will they react to each other? Will the Chinese gander take the new birds in and help protect them or he be territorial and agressive?

    Like all other birds they will be viewed as intruders. (Though Geese seem to take easier to young birds). Most likely there will be some fighting to establish who is running things. After awhile of that you should be find.
