Hey guys, I've got 5 ducks and one female tolous goose, i've discovered recently that one of my ducks happens to be a drake, and since he has reached maturity he has been very excitedly mating with whomever he can pin down except my goose who is the same age as he is (19 weeks monday). This doesn't bother me, the problem is that my goose makes an awful racket every time the drake mates with one of the ducks, her screetching starts out angy and low and then just escalates to complete fury, she is always right next to him with her head down and she doesn't shut up until the drake stops mating. I don't like this behavior because it turns out my drake has middle of the night escapdes and my goose vocalizes then too, earlier this week she woke me up 5 times in one night! I can just imagine what my neighbors think, my flock used to be silent during the night and now its ridiculously loud because of my goose. I tried separating her from the others (they go in their coop at night) and she just paced around mumbling non stop for hours so I finally, for lack of sleep, put her inside with the others. Why is she doing this, how long will the drake to stop mating and what can I do to limit her outbursts in the mean time--especially since the nights will be longer and longer.
