I heard a noise - ran out and the two ganders were in the nest area next to the nest going at it in a head lock, one gosling out of the nest on the ground trying to climb back into the nest... She hatched one yesterday around 2pm. It's fluffy and moving around now apparently. The other hatched this morning and the rest are all eggs with cracks/holes/etc. I put water and food in there near the nest. The ganders had been coming and going and being good about it all until just NOW. They had each other in a headlock. Banging into each other with their wrings in the chest of each other. I pulled them out of her nest area, they were at it! I tried to pull their beaks off each other not touching their necks/etc. I got them apart for a sec and they slammed into each other again. Like two stupid bar room fighters throwing punches. I finally (screaming for help) just picked up the smaller gander and the other one let go but then bit me on the arm and hit my hand with his wing --- I have a huge whelp on my hand now and huge bruise/bite on my arm. I ran to the house with him and the other chased us. I put one in a pen and the other is outside running around. Can I let them out now - is this over? I need ot keep them both away from mamma and the nest while hatching apparently? Will they be ok - did they hurt each other - sure hurt my hand.... and I am afraid if I let them out again they will get into it again. How do you really break up a gander fight? What caused this?? Having chicks is stressful enough!!
