Rainbow has two mommies!

critterkeeperJune 19, 2008

Mother Goose hatched one gosling, a white Emden/Chinese mix my 3 year old granddaughter named Rainbow. After a couple of weeks I let Mother and Rainbow out of their pen with the chickens and another broody goose who is nesting on a pile of eggs. Now at night Mother Goose, Rainbow and Broody Goose are all piled together on the nest. Is this OK?? Also, when Broody's goslings hatch will Mother and Rainbow be OK with them?

I don't know anything about geese. Wish I could help. From being at a friends house and watching her's it seems that the gals walk around together and keep the babies on the inside of the group for protection.
Let us know how it turns out.
