    So I was out doing duck chores and my white chinese goose, Lady Goosie who is married to a fawn and white runner drake named Sir Duck decided to try to bully me. Only thing was she blocked herself in between me and some buckets. I did what any self respecting waterfowl lover would do.

    I snatched her up and loved on her. She struggled momentarily, then submitted, even making soft murmuring sounds. Once she was comfortable, she put her "chin" (do geese have chins?) on my shoulder and preened my hair gently.

    However, her husband was quite put out. He circled us and kept a sharp eye on us as only a duck can do. Side facing, head tilted. He didn't get too close because he has been molested by me many times.

    This is the wedded couple

    [​IMG] Very funny! We have a few hens and roosters that have learned to stay FAR away from DW for fear of similar treatment. [​IMG]

    Oh my! I know wild geese can get quite nasty, but I never really thought about a domesticated one being that way.

    Great couple, BTW!!!
