Sorry! I wasn't trying to say all geese are mean, especially if you keep them in a flock. But a single goose can get nasty around everyone else besides the person it's imprinted on

Actually I have a female roman tufted that was my only goose for nearly three years because her intended mate died in transit. She is the friendliest bird I own. Never been aggressive towards anyone even though she imprinted on me. It really depends on the individual.

Ah. I have a male. I think they are way more aggressive but I'm sure there are some nice single ganders out there. I just feel in general, geese are aggressive when kept alone
But then again, yours used to have a mate.
The OP is likely only has this single goose, (because she thought it was a duck, though there is nothing wrong with that, I know someone who thought my pekins were baby swans) so he/she might become aggressive if kept in the house alonr

Lol, well, people are always mistaking my half Canada goose geese for ducks, asking me "What breed are those brown ducks?" so I can definitely see it being easy to mistake a gosling for a duckling since people do it with full grown adult geese too.

Actually unfortunately she never really had a mate - he died as a day old in the box during shipping so she was all alone from when she arrived. I'm really glad she's taken to the other geese I bought because I was really worried she wouldn't.

And yeah, males are more aggressive than females, so that's probably contributing.

Half the people who visit think my pekins are swans, or geese. XD

Same way with my Egyptian geese. Everybody thinks they're duck. ​Which is easy to do I reckin, they are small.
