Need advice on situation: We have 2 females and 2 males. I accidientally put the wrong gander in with the wrong goose and when they hatched the wrong mate helped raise them. Goslings are 6 weeks old now. We have 4. I have the parents with the goslings running around property enjoying life. The other pair (did not hatch btw eggs went dud) are in their pen and want out to join the flock. Problem is that the gander in there is the mate to the one of the parents. Whenever I did let them out the two ganders get into big fight and I have to separate and get bit usually in process. Upsets goslings/gooses/etc. At what age can I blend the flock or can I ever blend it - I hate to get rid of that gander because one of the parents is his mate and he misses her terribly but I am afraid he will fight with other gander to no end. The one time I let him out he went to the goslings on the pond and started what looked like trying to climb on top of one of them - looked like he was doing a mating dance in the water with his head and made me very nervous and I put him up. The other goose is just laid back Embden and the parents tollerate her they just keep her at a distance. At what point can they all get along and at what point can goslings defend themselves? I have a cross-beaked one that I guess will never be able to defend herself, huh? Having 2 separate shifts of feeding/cleaning and in and out of penned areas day/night is KILLING ME!
