I know that you can breed for temperament with dogs, or rather i've heard of that. But i've been pondering if that is something you can do with geese. We have Sebastopols, 3 adults i purchased as goslings. The two white females are fairly friendly, the lavender male is very wary. Then we hatched out five goslings from eggs purchased on ebay - super friendly guys! Then i have two sets of lavender kids, hatched from eggs purchased from the woman i got my original three from, so they are brothers and sisters to my adult lavender. Even though they were friendly as kids, they are just crazy skitzy now. They act like i'm going to kill them when i just go in to fill feeders and water pans. They don't come up and talk like they used to when they were younger. i'm a little befuddled. The woman who had the pair that produced the lavenders got them from Holderreads. She said they were not friendly at all, and the male would get super mean during breeding season, so she sold them. So, i don't know, i was just wondering if any geese breeders on here have any input.
