Customer Stories and Helpful Advice About Ducks & Geese

One Versus Two or More Geese

I had a lone goose for a few years and know that it is certainly possible to have a single goose, although I felt so sorry for him as geese are flock animals and I believe he really missed the company. Of course, if you imprint yourself on a hatchling, you and said gosling will be bonded very well. However, humans usually have to go off to those pesky jobs, or shopping, or errands, etc.

My lone goose was an Embden gander. Not particularly friendly, but he was a charmer none-the-less. One thing I did do for him when he was living alone was to get him a plastic goose pal. They looked so much alike I had trouble telling which one was which from afar! He hung around that plastic goose a lot, so I think it helped some. (That gander is gone now, but the plastic goose remains and I still do a double take when I catch it out of the corner of my eye, thinking it is Stubb I am seeing!)

The geese I have now are Toulouse. The female, Koko, is a gentle soul and I would highly recommend the breed based on her alone. The male, who is the offspring of Koko and Stubb, is a cocky guy, but an absolute joy.

I figure if you're going to get one, you might as well get two. Not much more work involved and then they have each other when you're not able to be right there with them.
