You can pm me if you want too.But I have read DH book, had couple geese years ago with chickens. Read everything I can find ...So how do you manage breeding flocks? I see the website with them all together, or in groups... want to know how you manage ganders and if , when they fight? (I mentioned I caught my 2 ganders fighting and hosed them, and I'd found some breast feathers and a bin(nesting box ) turned over in their night aviary first. They are almost 2 now, and I guess they are maturing. I plan on adding more geese, (another breed)...but need some management hints. If I'd known fighting would be a problem,I'd have fenced and divided differently. So now I have to refence, redivide and will be adding other pens for new birds. So how do you manage gander fighting , breeding groupsetc.? 1)Is it reasonably safe to let them together in the day on free range on pasture?(I have ducks too, Show quality Runners from Holderreads and don't want them killed either, they run from the geese, if the geese chase them.(which is usuallythe geese saying "I want THAT pool, NOW!" 2)Is this an individual personality problem? I have one gander that is more aggressive than the other..... DO you tend to CULL what you think is an aggressive bird? What is too aggressive? Is it just seasonally?Or is there a "pecking order" and they "work it out"/ Just an occasional squabble?I haven't seen any serious damage, but don't want to either.... 3)Do you divide ALL breeding groups into separate night pens?and day yards? Does it help to have more females than just pairs? 4)Are all these nice photos I see at all the websites, just to mess with my head, of groups of birds together?
