Is my baby goose attached to me?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So ive had him,her it, not sure yet, for a couple of weeks, maybe a month now. It gets very loud and peeps franticaly if i walk away and it cannot keep up with me or i have it locked up and cant follow or roam. If i have it and my duck outside, they will both roam around, but if i walk up and call the goose over and start walking or run away, the baby goose peeps again frantically trying to keep up and will proceed to follow me around for a few minutes until it sees something.

So what im asking is if the goose has created a bond or a attatchment towards me.

Thanks for your time.

If the gosling was hatched in an incubator and you (people) were the first living thing it saw, it has imprinted on you. You are its father/mother. In effect the gosling thinks it's people, not a goose.

Even so, it has imprinted on people-on you. Most likely it was incubator hatched.
