Adopt a Goose

Hello, I'm Biscuit the goose and you can adopt me!​​

I’m Biscuit, one of the gang of geese here at Goodheart Farm Animal Sanctuary. I used to live at the bottom of my previous owner’s garden, but when he moved house, I wasn’t able to come with him.

Whilst the rest of the geese head to the pond for the evening, I prefer the comfort of my very own coop. So each evening, my feathered friends swing by my pad to drop me off. and guess what? The following morning they pick me up again, ready for another day of adventure!

When avian flu restrictions ended on 1st of April and the geese could be let out, Biscuit wanted to make sure no one was left behind and stepped in to help Animal Care Assistant Abby to herd the rest of the gaggle out of their enclosure!

Social structureGeese are monogamous - which means that when they find a mate, they stay with them for life. Females will lay a clutch of up to 6 eggs, and when the goslings hatch they will stay with their parents for a long time, even joining them on their annual migration.

Our rescued geese all have their own unique rescue stories and special personalities. They now all live in peace and safety at our sanctuary, and enjoy patrolling the yard, splashing in the pond, and greeting visitors!

Fascinating facts about geese

Contrary to popular belief, farmyard geese are not monogamous and a male usually has a harem of three or four female companions. They are, however, extremely dedicated partners and will mourn the loss of a mate.

Geese are particularly territorial during nesting time, and may "hiss" and "honk" when approached.

On the ground, a group of geese is called a gaggle. In the air, a group of geese is called a skein. When flying close together, a group of geese is called a plump!​
