    I have a very mixed flock of ducks and geese. They have all been raised together thus far and seem to be a happy bunch. I am not sure what will happen in the future as they get bigger and decide on who is the boss. I had a Canada goose last year (who flew away) and she was the leader of the ducks (but they got taken out by foxes). Everyone got along quite well.

    I am not even sure what sexes the ducklings and goslings are. So what do you think? Who would be the boss? I assume a goose will be the dominant one out of the flock (3 geese and 6 ducks).

    Thanks!
     
  2. I don't know who would be the leader -- probably a goose, but you never know. We have a very opinionated barred rock hen who is the boss of everything in our chicken yard -- from pullets, to the older hens, to the bantam rooster, to even the big white Pekin drake. I'm waiting to see if her reign is over when I let my geese out into the orchard.
