    my ganders have begun fighting!!! the two have been together with two ducks for nearly a year now. i recently bought two females cause i didnt have females. now the ganders have started fighting. they stand in their kiddie pool and grab eachother by the back of the mecks and try to drown eachother!!! is this a stoppable thing!?!?!?

    Unless someone is getting hurt I'd let them work it out, there will be a dominant gander and the other will be second in command. I have had to stand by and watch mine drakes.and drake and gander work out their differences. As long as no one is getting hurt, there maybe a bit of blood though and it's usually from their wings hitting something other than each other. Fence, shrubs etc.

    Thats very common with year old geese with their first breeding season and nxt year it will be different but since they grew up together the fighting will be less but the ganders arent fighting for the females by the way but they are trying to mate with eachothet ,might be weird but thats it and it will stop when they grow through the year. My year old ganders always do this so no problem :)
