OK, my Pilgrims are roughly a year old. One male, two females...When her first two eggs hatched, she threw them from the nest into the middle of the goose hut and all three threatened them by hissing and snapping at the poor little guys. The other female picked one up and threw it and killed it. At that point I jumped in and saved the other along with all the eggs that were left. I put her in a swimming pool w/ heat lamp and two days later a male gosling hatched out. I was sooo glad she got a companion! Now I'm raising up these two seperate...Parents want nothing to do with them...except violence. A day after I saved them, I tried to reintroduce the baby to the mother and she went into attack mode again. She had no clue that they were hers or even what the little aliens were! The babys are three weeks old and so sweet and growing like crazy (as they do) but I'm not set up to house and raise geese seperately...I'll prolly sell t5hem to a good home...But has anybody else experienced this type of behavior?
