    [​IMG] Oh my! Apparently I have a pair (of geese!) My weeder/ african probably/maybe chinese or mixed geese. Two of them at least have been doing the "wild thing" in their kiddy pool! And as opposed to the screaming, running and tackling that goes on between the rooster and chickens this appears to be..........very consentual! They are April hatched. I think we will have to change MISS Nibb's name.

    Yeah, I would guess consentual. Have you ever seen a full size goose when she is ticked off? A polite yes ma'am, no ma'am, please ma'am, would be a lot safer.

    I no longer own geese but am thinking of ordering some goslings next year. [​IMG]
