    Hey my geese have recently over the past few weeks really started ganging up on other geese. I assume this has to do with breeding season coming up but have never had this issue before. Its sub zero temps out and they are picking on each other to the point of bleeding and lots of feather loss on their back. I have tried to separate them but I then they start against someone else.....Any suggestions would be appreciated.
     
  2. Sounds like you may have too many ganders

    I agree with 8 that you may have too many ganders and they need to be separated from each other...

    I agree possibly too many ganders to geese. If you have had geese for a while it could be changes in hierarchy.
