I know a few members here have a housegoose. I am seeking some guidance. My brown Chinese gosling is almost four weeks old, and is constantly using me for a chew toy. Right from the beginning I have discouraged this behavior with a firm NO and, if she does it immediately again, (gently!) holding her beak shut for a moment and repeating the NO. The problem is that I am worried the message isn't getting through. I haven't seen much improvement, and of course as she grows, it is starting to hurt more and more (especially if she grabs just a tiny bit of skin). I don't mind sticking with it if consistency is key, but before I forge on I just want to see if what I am doing is correct/appropriate? Is she testing me or is this just baby naughtiness? I wish I knew how to post pictures here. She is the cutest thing! Thanks for any and all advice!
