    Geese aggressive depending on the color of our shirts

    A few months ago my partner decided to get 2 geese, male and female Grey geese. I'm not a big fan of geese but he wanted them. They were friendly at first and I made sure to bring them treats. But after a few months, they became quite aggressive. I stopped going back to their area and left it up...

    Imprinting

    Hi, I’m doing some research into geese behaviour and was wondering if anyone on here wouldn’t mind answering a few questions? This is a paper on bird to human bonds and if it’s possible for a goose to be without other birds around and still thrive. how long do geese stay imprinted on a human...

    Goose Beak Bleeding From Injury

    So earlier today this morning I went to feed my geese and chickens. I opened the goose coop and grabbed their food dish and when I went to close the door, my gander (Oliver) came up to tell me I needed to leave (because he can be aggressive as you all know geese are). He peaked his head out and...

    I Think My Geese Were Breeding...

    So...it’s the end of November and it’s slowly getting colder. I would think geese mating isn’t a thing this time a year and my geese are still young, only 6 months old. I have a little kitty pool and about each day I here my gander almost do a distress call sound, almost as if he’s being killed...

    Goose with clicking sound when she walks

    I noticed my goose's foot is making a clicking noise every time she takes a step, should I be concerned she is 4-5 months old and she walks fine other then the noise with every step.

    Squeaking sick goose????

    Hello everyone. We have 3 pet geese, and recently I kept hearing a squeak every so often. Sounded just like a squeaky toy noise. I finally figured out today where the noise was coming from, one of my male geese. I watched him for around an hour. He still honks like the others, but will...

    Ice melt and chickens?

    I’m preparing for winter. My chickens and ducks don’t have an enclosed run. They have our 2 acre fenced in yard to share with my pig, cats, and dogs and their 10x10ft insulated shed they get locked in at night. However most of the time they like to hang out on our concrete patio under our deck...

Daisy (the one we believe to be female) is 8.6 pounds and has a much smaller knob than Oliver (the one we believe to be male). Daisy has a quick, lower pitched honk. Oliver is 9.8 pounds and has a...

    Goose sudden illness/ seizure help

    I have 7 four month old African geese. Today one goose suddenly started to have neck spasms and twisting. She stopped before I could reach her, as they are free range, and walked off normally. She just did it again while I was changing their waters. So I was able to get a better look. She lays...

    Oral injury in toulouse goose

    I noticed some swelling under my goose's chin today so I checked out her mouth to make sure she didn't eat anything ridiculous, like they do, and what I found was odd. It almost looks like the fleshy bit under the tongue (lingual frenulum) was torn and is possibly infected? I don't have a lot of...

    Poll: do you feed pellets or crumble?

    Hi! So I was reading some threads about problems with crumble and problems with pellet feed. Personally, I think it depends on the brand. Please vote and type what feed brand you use.
