Hi everyone! I have some questions that I'm not able to find answers for doing a forum search, so here goes: I have four embden geese, two males and two females. Three of them arrived last fall--two males and one female. Two of those are bonded (Fred and Belle) and after Fred kicked the stuffing out of Harold, the third goose, I removed him from their pen. We adopted Honky (I didn't name her, her previous owner's granddaughter did) this spring and she and Harold get along very well. Here come the questions: My two males still honk and scream at one another when Belle comes out of her shelter where she's been unsuccessfully sitting on eggs. If I move them to different parts of the property, will this help the noise at night? It can be 3 a.m. and they will go at it. Since they currently live right outside my bedroom window, it's a little inconvenient. I really hoped that Harold and Honky would bond, but while they do hang out together most of the time, if he sees Belle he books it across the yard to stand by the fence, while Honky wanders over to one of the duck pens and hangs out with them. We keep the geese in a fenced-in yard, with two of them in a smaller pen in this area. They are protected from dogs, coyotes, etc. Are they in any danger from great horned owls or hawks? We lost a chicken earlier this year to a GHO, and I know it was an owl because I heard it hooting later on that evening. It got her right at sunset, actually. I know that owls can and will kill ducks, but big embdens? I put out shelters for the geese in the pen and laid shutters along the back of the chicken coop for the other geese, but I worry that they aren't safe--like a lot of others have posted, my geese only use the shelter for egg-laying. And finally, if I provided them with a big enough area for all the geese to spread out, can they ever go back in the same pen again? Harold still dotes on Belle even though he's no longer in the pen with her, but Fred is her mate and I've had to pull them apart when they tried wrestling through the fence. Is it dangerous for them to fight, or is it just a lot of feather pulling? I want to move them to a different part of my yard where there is more green for them to forage, since they cleared out their area pretty well. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me!
