    We just picked up our two new African geese. They are both female and will be raised with two male ducks and a female duck. We do have a year gander on the pond but he's already paired up with his goose.

    Will the two new girls be lonely without a male companion?

    Nope. All they need is a companion. Gender doesn't seem to matter to Geese.

    We've had 2 female Roman Tufted geese for 6 years Betty and June. They are very dedicated to one another and one is even the dominate goose, she also mounts the other. Their names were Benny and June but Benny started laying eggs so became Betty. They are a couple in love.
