    Geese aggressiveness questions

    Hi, I have some Chinese geese and they were handled a lot and brought up around my dogs since they were 3 days old and started chasing my dogs away and biting them since they were only a week old. They were brought up around them and are now 2 months old and bite my dogs and make them yelp so I...

    Can a goose be happy with an aggressive gander?

    Back in April i decided that my sweetheart pet goose Peggy was lonely and needed a companion thanks to the help of some people on this site. I ended up getting a young gander named Reggie along with two little ducks and they have their own area with a pond. Things were fine until around August...

    My goose loves apples

    I've had three geese since late December of 2018, though two of them have disappeared recently, with a very small pile of feathers left behind both times. I believe it was a bear, but have no way of knowing for sure. My last goose, Hermione Freeranger, was still very "You're a PREDATOR, so...

    Goose mounting ducks?

    Hello! I have a single 3 month old goose that I raised with my ducks since day olds. They’ve always gotten along fine. Today I let them all out to go to the pond and I heard some commotion. The goose was latching onto the backs of one of my ducks and then mounted her like he was trying to mate...

    What's up with this goose?

    Lately this goose has been staying around the house area instead of going out to pasture with other geese. We seem to have connected. We honk at each other. If I try to hug him he bites me though. Why is he staying around here? Did his flock kick him out or something? He doesn't appear to be...

    Introducing goslings to single goose

    Should i have anything to worry about when introducing goslings to a single african goose? I've read that usually ganders are what to worry about. Also I was thinking that since she is the only goose(4 ducks, 1 goose) that she might readily adopt the babies, but just want to make sure.

    Goose mating behaviors

    Ok friends, educate me! What are some of the tell tale signs that geese are ready to mate? Do they do any head bobbing or dancing like the other birds?

    Lonely Goose

    So, I’ve had an incident where a raccoon got two out of three of my geese, which leaves me with one male. Ever since then, whenever I try to let him out of his cage by the lake side and go back home, he follows me all the way there honking the whole time. He used to do this with his flock as...

    Moving Geese from Pond to Lake Side

    Hello! I have three geese that we’re trying to move from a small pond and keep by a lakeside, but they keep trying to return to the pond. They get nervous a lot around the lake side, they start shaking a lot, but they seem to do ok whenever someone is with them. At night, we try to keep them in...

    New to raising a house goose!

    Hi! I'm Franks mom, and I'm extremely new to all of this! My husband and I took in a baby goose, only a few weeks old, and figured since I am a stay at home mom with our infant son that raising Frank wouldn't be an issue. That being said, I have never raised a goose before and am entirely new to...

The employees did not specify or know how old they were but looked to be a few days I assume. I bought a African Chinese swan and a regular white Chinese swan goose. A few days went by and...

    Noisy male goose

    Hello everyone! I had a quick question regarding my gander. He currently lives with one male duck. Anytime I’m outside and then leave, the goose starts screaming his head off for the next ten minutes. Im not sure if he’s upset that I’m leaving, or what. Would having another male goose with him...
