I have always wanted a few geese, they are wonderful. This last April I my ordered goslings came. They are now just over 3 mo old. I put up a livestock water tank for them to swim in, it is 2 feet deep and 10 feet round. Sence there are 7 of them I wanted to make sure they had enough room. We put a ramp 10 feet long ( so it wouldn't be to steep for them to get in ) from top of tank to ground and cinder block just in side the tank and up to the edge so they could get out with ease. There are 7 geese, 2 africans, 2 sebastopols, 2 embdens, and 1 pilgrim goose, and none of them will get into the tank and swim or float or anything. I don't understand I thought geese loved water and as hot as it has been ( high 90's ) the tank would be welcome. Is it too deep??? they will climb up the ramp just fine but only to line up and get a drink and clean their bills. most of the time they get their drink from the ground over the side ( they just barely get their heads over the edge ). I gently set the pilgrim goose into the water and she seemed ok with it dipping her head neck and then diving under but when she came up with a splash the others ran away and she baled out over the side and ran away with them, I guess she didn't want to get left behind, but still refuses to enter the tank on her own. What did I do wrong???? What can I do to encourgage them with out frightening them??
