My buff goose is still young, 6 mos old. I don't know if she is a guy or a gal. As what is normal for young waterfowl - it seems especially geese - she investigates everything with her bill. Several cords, bungees, and towels have suffered. Recently I have been enforcing a no-skin rule for nibbling as she nibbles family and friends and dogs equally. I would like her to become a public goose, even a visiting goose. The problem has become that when my husband tries to pet her she abandons all that gentle nibbling to attack his arm and hand. No pinches here, but full mouth bites with twists if he doesn't get away quick enough. I'm not sure who might be the cause. Is my husband's posture (he's not really happy I have a goose) the trigger, or is it a gender issue with the goose? Help, my husband has accepted my menagerie up to now, but I don't want my goose to alienate him. My geese are my favorites, I want them to get along.
