My flock consists of an embden goose, mallard x muscovy duck, two hens and 14 goslings and a wild duckling. The goose has adopted the role of mother to everyone. This is endearing, but she has become over-protective and shouts at anything bigger than a sparrow that flies over the property and we are in a flight path from the airport..... The first flight out leaves at 04:25. I put them all in the garage at night now, but Goose calls to come out at about 05:00. The neighbours aren't greeting anymore. The garage has no door, only a gate. If I cover the gate with shade cloth, will it help to keep Goose quiet until I let her out? The gosling (Egyptian geese wildings) are due for release at the end of the month and are starting to test their wings. "Mother" goose runs up and down the garden with them shouting encouragement. The neighbours aren't greeting anymore. Any ideas, other than rehome?
