    i have a pair of toulouse goose about a year old, Tonny and Hiss(male and female). i moved them to a pen with rougher ground rocks and sandy dirt, so i got them lots of straw and the Hiss has made what looks to be a large nest in theyre shelter and Tonny has become overly aggressive to me. and note just a month ago i was hand feeding them and holding them like babys with no problem...now they chase anything that moves alarm at leaves blowing around and harass the dogs all the time. are they wanting to raise a family or are they practicing for next year? lol i do hope so.

    It sounds like typical spring behavior for geese. You'll have goslings in no time [​IMG]
