    I thoughtlessly placed a small orange rug on the floor. Little did I know it resembled "Rug of the Living Dead"! My goose Keld was scared stiff of it. [​IMG] He stopped several feet away from it and started whimpering. And there he stayed for half an hour, poor goose. Well, a little dry cat food on the rug did the trick - he cautiously got closer, but soon his appetite overruled his fright, and he entered the rug gulping down the kibble. Ta-daaaa!

    I have to be very careful about changing anything in the part of my house the geese can visit. A paper bag on the floor can cause fear.

    I use dog peewee pads on the floor of their night time pen in my room. I forgot to replenish my supply and had to use an old plush throw for the floor, it was bright yellow with flowers. I put Petey in there and he almost destroyed my room freaking out and flapping to get away from the evil yellow throw. In order to get them to sleep AT ALL, I had to use almost a whole roll of paper towels to cover the throw and make it looks white like the peewee pads.
