    i have/had two flocks of geese...flock one - containing 5 geese consisting of 2 chinese (or african? the one without the knobbel on the bill) geese (M/f), and 3 embdens (1m/2f), and another smaller flock (flock 2) of 3 embdens.(1m/2f)

    well moneys getting tight and the grass is dissappearing so i put three embens from the first flock up for sale. the guy came to collect and decided he just wnted a couple, leaving one female behind. now i tried to put her back with the chinese (african?) couple but they will no longer let her near them..the male chases her away??

    do you think if i try putting her with my other flock that they may accept her? or have i doomed her too a life alone [​IMG]((

    i have 2 young geese (around 7 weeks old now) could i try pairing her up with these?

    she looks so lonely alone in the field and is constantly calling out for her 2 friends..i dont understand why the other two no longer let her near when theyve all been a flock together since birth?

    Hi there

    I would try tointegrate her with your other Embdens and see how they get on. She may be pushed down in the social order at first but give it a little time. If she fails to integrate then I think your best bet is to run her with the goslings as Im sure she'll appreciate the company [​IMG]

    Best of luck.

    well she decided she didnt like the other 2 embdens and flapped over the fence back to the chinese/african geese...the malekept chasing her away but she persisted.

    just been out to feed them this morning and all three are grazing together...yay!!

    happy ending!
