We can only hope it's just a 'fling' and they will come to their senses when they see a pretty lady of their own kind :mrgreen: Or in the case of yours... gander. But I am afraid my gander has been after this duck for some time. I seperated them for 6 months. But he did not forget her!

Was wondering the same myself, could be an interesting experiment chookster. Has your mussie laid eggs that have resulted from her trist with the gander :?: :?:

Very curious as would throw a spanner in the works if you got some mussie/goslings out re: the goose/duck debate :?: :?: :aaargh: :aaargh:

Just wondering is all :P

And your geese are lovely :P

And would still love to see your mussies in the online show :P :P :D :D

I bred Roman geese sometime ago... (but went out of them coz I didn't like them just in my opinion and into another breed instead)...
I had a duck mate with a goose... (well many times actually) :oops:
I had/still have, a 4 year old Khaki Campbell drake (overally confident and bossy), chase one of the Roman geese(female) around till he got to her, and mated :shock: :!: .... then he toddled off with his head held high bossy proud and making that drake noise till he got back with all his girls, and everyone thought the sunshines out of his _____ :!: It was a mixture of funny and ridiculous...I was just confused and frustrated that this went on.
I ended up having to keep them seperate! :shock: :?
He did it a breeding season...and the goose was always broody round that time. (so he was a very sleezy drake and the goose wanted to nest/lay and get on with the breeding season...

But to cut to the chase....
Nothing ever came about the eggs though, and My fetility rate was down for that goose...and now all over bar the shouting, so i'm happy :D

I doubt it would result in anything but clear shells, and I don't have room under broodies or incubator to waste.

All the muscovy eggs have been clear even with the drake around, he is still a young fella and isn't really game enough to have his way with my fiesty little girls lol. They have a bit of attitude lol.
