    So I have one drake who is not doing any mating currently. I also have 5 young Golden 300's that are flirting outrageously and suggesting all sorts of naughtiness with my goose gander. I am somewhat concerned seeing as he was also showing some interest, and I'm not sure everyone would emerge unscathed from the experience. Any suggestions? I can't easily separate them during the day, I keep the geese and the ducks in separate pens at night. There are no waterfowl sexual therapists available in my area... OK, but seriously now, I don't know what to do? Any helpful suggestions? Will they get over this infatuation?

    I have 1 gander, he has always mated with my Muscovies with no problems from the girls at all.

    or complaints either.
