    Because right now I am 15 minutes late with their dinner and they are chewing on the screen door and staring at me while the ducks mill around and quack.[​IMG]
    They sure are full of personality!
    Now they are eating the siding, time to go chase them off so that I can pretend not to be reinforcing this behavior when I go feed them soon. [​IMG]

    Yeah, it was getting dark and if I went out to try to take one they would have run away since every time I catch them up on the porch I chase them off. They are really cute, I just get sick of cleaning poop off the porch.

    I had to stop feeding my cats outside, because no matter where or how high I put the cat feeder, the geese always found a way to knock it down and get the food. The ammount of crap on my porches has greatly decreased. [​IMG]

    My ducks would roost on carport during the day and whenever they generally felt like it!
    I was hosing it off for the umpteen time and here they came...
    I sprayed them and boy did they run!
    Thought they liked water?
    Evidently only on their own terms [​IMG]

    my goose chased my dog away from her dog bowl and started eating dog food... is that okay? I though geese were vegetarians? I had no idea he liked kibble.

    They are vegetarians, but they have a compulsion to eat dog and cat food... it's worse even, when I catch a stray rooster on the proch eating the "chicken and rice" dog food. ><

    My geese are on probation. 30 go away this Thursday, of the 50, to become Christmas geese. They unwired my stock trailer with their sharp beaks. I had just rewired the whole thing a month ago. [​IMG]

    And I just thought chickens did that.

    I rewired one of my lamps in the coop for the umpteenth time today. I think it's out of their reach and they find a way.
