I have 3 CP geese that have been biting at the fencing around my muscovy ducklings for 6 wks. The muscovy are 9 wks old & now bite back at the fence & geese. If anyone's bills get through the fencing or under the gate, they get bit - no harm done though. Are they playing, fighting, competing for status??? The muscovy will soon be able to free range but if this is aggression, I need to start introducing them to the duck yard as an alternate range area. It's just too many ducks for the coop there which I close at night so I was hoping they'd free range 24/7. Insight from anyone more familiar with goose behavior would be welcome. TIA
