I can only speak for Embden who was hatched here by a Muscovy duck he is pretty docile except during breeding season then I have to [watch him like a hawk pardon the pun] He is a biter. I think a Female would be a better choice for a pet. especially if you have children who by the way should never be left alone with a goose or geese and be taught  a healthy respect for them.

 

Even with Africans females would make much better pets.
