Our friends have a pair of African Geese that we are planning on buying from them next week (committed to them last week but DH just spayed the pond edges and it requires 7-10 days before fish are edible or animals should feed/graze on grass in area). Anyhow, now DH is panicking because everyone is telling him that the Geese are mean and will not allow us to sit by the pond & relax without "attacking" us. It does not help that the male (Clyde) did bite him on the Knee the first time he walked into the pen with our friend that we are buying them from. Is this true or should we be able to coincide with them, the pond covers approx 1/3 acre when it is full so I would think there is plenty of area to share. I think he is mainly worried about our 14 month old granddaughter when she visits us. They are a beautiful pair of geese and I think having them in the pond just seems natural..
