I have 2 female domestic geese left (after the male, Lancelot, died), Bella & Betsy. They are coping well and Betsy (Lancelot's favourite) is now encouraging Bella to try the pond that Lancelot had largely kept her from - she's dipped in twice now. They are so sweet together and are starting to tolerate me more - less hissing, and they're wandering closer to the house. However, I noticed some odd behaviour and haven't been able to find any reference to it online, so hope someone here can shed some light on it please? Bella & Betsy were together on the lawn this morning, standing still, close to each other, then Betsy put her neck around Bella's neck. I initially thought she was tucking her head under Bella's wings to sleep, but what she actually did was to use her neck to push Bella's neck down towards the ground and Bella lowered her neck and head and started nibbling the grass! Then she let her be. She did this several times, sometimes Bella would feed and sometimes she wouldn't. Then they wandered off grazing. There was no aggression or anything vocal either. Any ideas?
