I have a pair of Toulouse geese, a pair of American Buff, and an Italian Skåne mix female. I just got them over a week ago, and I know that at least 2 of the 3 females are laying eggs. Each evening we walk them to the run, and they seem to get the idea. Yesterday, they decided they wanted to hang out at the neighbours garden. We have waterfront property, so the geese can swim where ever their little hearts desire. Anyways, my husband went over to the neighbours to try to get the geese into the water. When he got there, they had just entered the water and were on their way home. When he got back to our property, they were on the beach, and could then be herded on up to the run. So this evening, we are wondering if we even need to walk them up. I am watching the water, and they are taking their sweet time to get their butts over here. I have been told by other that guess do not put themselves to bed, like chickens. Am I going to have to run over, or take the boat out to round up these duffs, or will they return on their own?
