Maybe someone can explain some goose behaviors to me. I have 4 geese, 2 sebastapols (8 mths old), 1 super african and 1 american buff which are 6 months old and both female. Lately I've noticed them to be a bit noisiery then usual. I think it's my male sebbie that has been vocal...... high pitched mostly. I don't know if they are just very chatty with the warm weather or if they are yelling at the runner ducks. The one I'm really curious about is the super african goose. I find that she spends more time alone these days. She is quite vocal at times. Today she wasn't around so I went looking for her. I walked around the yard and called for her. She must have seen be because she made a sound that is distinctly hers and I found her sitting in a dog house nice and comfy. This dog house is really a duck/turkey house. I had a turkey try and hatch eggs in there last year. No go. It's just a spare place for the birds to go. I tossed some hay inside last week in case some birds wanted to lay some eggs. No luck. Anyway, she didn't come out but she just let me no that she was inside safe and sound. Do you think she could be getting ready to lay an egg? Her motherly instincts starting to kick in? Our weather has been unseasonably warm..... I'm not complaining..... lol. I live in Southeastern, NC which is near the coast not far from the SC boarder. We have sub-tropical weather. Today it was in the 70's which is warm for this time of year. It should be in the 50's. Although my chickens are not really laying eggs but I'm wondering the weather is playing tricks on my geese. Nothing unusual about the other 2 female geese. The african is very fond of me as well and is the only goose that will come up to me and want to be pet. She's not big on being held but she doesn't mind if I rub the base of her neck or halfway up. She will also let me pet her chest and back. Sometimes she just stands next to me and stares at my legs..... lol. She's a neat goose. Her being by herself more is sort of bothering me a bit. I don't know what to make of that.
