I hope it all works out for BB he sounds like a real sweet heart. I will caution you though when breeding season is under way which is winter into late spring. Ganders can get very ornery and will bite or use their wings and flog if they feel threatened or are protecting their mate. Another reason BB should not be left out where the public is. He may not get this way since he doesn't have a mate right now but they can be unpredictable remember when I said he may look at you as possible mate. That means he may try to mate with you a leg or an arm or if you turn your back on him just be aware of this so you won't be surprised and think he is attacking. . They just get so hormonal they can't help themselves. You can teach him that it isn't appropriate behavior though so if he begins to get personal let me know and I give you the link to training geese.
