I have 5 geese and this one little gander, I think, well yes...it hissed at me, so it is! I wanted to know I think he is in love with me or is he just the guard of the rest of the geese? I can see him just all by hisself many times at their pens gate entrance just longing for me? When I go to see him.....he talks to me and if I open his pen..he comes close to me and gets really in my face....yet he is still ready to flee. I did separate him with the one female goose I have and he started to pick up sticks and nest......but she always walks along the fence longing for the other 3 ganders that I have? What do you think? I think he is in love with me!!
