    Anyone know where I can get some miniature gooses?

    I need some really little ones, about the size of a rubber ducky, or smaller.

    I used to have a large pond with two beautiful gooses, a white embden and a grey toulouse and I would sit and watch them bath themselves and swim under water, which was really neat.

    Sometimes they would attack my rubber raft as I floated by....

    But now all I have is a little four foot by four foot pond and full size geese would be too big, so I need some small goooses.

    About this size would be just right.
    If I had a 3D printer I'd zap these guys out tonight.

    Anyone out there a geneticist?

    Wow, BBad, I am truly amazed!
    Although they are still to big, I am amazed. Four to ten pounds verses up to 26 pounds for a toulouse or embden, but I can't seem to find anything about their physical size. Looks like they might be about the size of a domestic duck.

    But we're on the right track!

    Gooses is the diminutive form of Geese.

    Take a pic of a goose, go to Microsoft Paint, click "image", then "resize/skew". Works everytime. With this method, you can even create giant geese.

    Geese make wonderful pets, if you have some water around for them. They make very good "watch dogs" as they will honk and yell and chase strangers entering their territory.
    You don't have to feed them and they are very hardy, until the temperature dips way below freezing, then they only need some straw and wind protection.

    If you have a small body of water they can remain outside all night, safe in the pond from racoons, coyotes, bobcats, and roving dogs.

    Unlike ducks, which tend to disappear in the night, pond or no pond.
    Also ducks are obnoxiously loud....continuously. Quack, quack, quack quuack...drives you crazy.

    Geese do try to bit you on the back of the leg from time to time though.

    Topnotch,

    Yes, but then I need a 3D printer.

    I'm thinking of taking up a collection.

    According to the OED, Goose: 5.a. A tailor's smoothing-iron. Pl. gooses.[So called from the resemblance of the handle to the shape of a goose's neck.]

    I am curious about the 4 by 4 foot pond. Isn't that called a puddle? How deep is this pond and how would it protect them from dogs and coyotes? Or am I just being too literal?

    Good point Specs,

    Hmmmm, ruined my whole plan.

    The pond is about 2 1/2 feet deep at the pump end and a foot or so everywhere else.

    The little gooses wouldn't even stand a chance from a stray cat.

    I'm open to suggestions.
