1.) My duckling has recently started limping. I have some pretty excited dogs so I'm not sure if maybe one of them toppled him or something or if the gosling is picking on him or if he just pulled a muscle. Nothing noticing wrong with his foot or leg but he has been playing down a lot more. I've also noticed he has been making different noises instead of the basic cheep cheep. It almost sounds like he has anxiety. I'm not sure if hes just growing up and his noises are changing or if he is in pain.
2.) I had them both outside earlier and noticed that the gosling grabbed the duck by the neck. I scolded him and he stopped but it makes me nervous that he is bullying the duck. They've been fine every other time and the duck follows him around constantly and they lay together. I'm really hoping that I don't have to separate them. I have been keeping them in a large storage tote since they were small but will be upgrading this weekend to a large outdoor chicken coop.
3.) Can geese be family friendly once grown? I'm concerned because i don't want my goose attacking my neices or dogs.
Thanks in advance for your help!
