I have some questions about geese. Are they good guard animals? Having a dog isn't an option Will they be friendly with people they know, and nasty to people they don't? Have a personal situation where I could use a guard animal. Do they do well in cold/snowy areas? Am planning on getting some runner & welsh harlequin ducks next year. Have quite a bit of land for them to roam on, with a good portion fenced in for the alpacas.
