Hello! I hatched a pair of sebastopol geese about 5 weeks ago. They are my first geese. They are very attached to humans. I cannot get them to do anything on their own. They currently still live in my downstairs bathroom. Right now, they are watching me through the window, they are on the back deck. I used some chicken wire to fence off a large part of the back garden for them, space they normally like, but the female goose, Gertie, she cut her wing trying to get out. They cried all morning. My office is just around the corner. I don't mind them hanging around, but there is just so much poop! I have an acre of land, 2 ponds, but they won't go anywhere on their own. Even the pond, they love when I put them in, but won't go in on their own. So the question is.....when will they be more independent?
