Okay, we've been freeranging all the birds (11 chickens, 4 ducks and mr. Goose) all last summer, and fall and this winter. Anyway, with all the crazy mud we've had this spring, all the birds want to just sit on our steps and poop. So I got a bunch of wire, and made a big enclosure around both the goose house and the chicken coop. It's been fine for about a week, but then the chickens realized they could hop up onto the back of the goose house, walk up the slope and fly down into the yard... then up onto the steps to poop. So I got some more fencing (not needed to protect from predators, just to protect our steps from them), and made the circle bigger, away from the goose house. Anyway, that's the background story to my problem. I was in there, wielding my staple gun (the only tool I can use other than a hammer), trying to put up a line of fencing to separate the waterfowl from the chickens kind of like (/) kind of situation, and Mr goose just kept nibbling on me, wouldn't stop...and it really, really hurt, not like the PLIERS pinch he can do, but still painful... he will NOT stop biting me if he can reach me... just rubs his head on the ground, then bites me. I had to lock him up to finish... then I held my hand over his side of the fence, and he stared at it, tilted his head back, opened his mouth really wide, and JUMPED!!!! straight up in the air (only like 2 inches, cause he's kind of fat) to try to bite me.... what is his deal? Is this love or hate?
