So we have 4 buff africans from Holdereads (keep in mind that these geese get 50ibs) and a tiny extremly fluffy extremly mean bantam cochin hen. The geese are mortified of her, when you feed the geese she walks up to there food dish and starts eating and the geese run. So when we first got the buff africans from holdereads as babies we also had a pilgrim gander who's mate was sitting on a nest. We put the babies in the barn in a rabbit hutch that wasn't in use with a heat light. Well Waldo (the pilgrim gander) decided he would adopt the babies through the bars. Well you can imagine getting to there cage was fun and keeping them tame while there 'dad' said we where the boogie men was even funner. So when we took the africans out for some time in the yard of course it was dificult. I would start walking with baby geese in tow and Waldo would hiss at me and honk and the baby geese would go running to him and I would call and the babies would look so confused and sit in the middle asking why mom and dad goose didn't get along. When ever Waldo got the babies over to his side I swear he would look smug at me. His wife did not aprove of the aficans. This went on for about a month constant being hissed at and smug looks. When ever I would try to lock Waldo up he would find a way out and come running to the babies. Finaly his own eggs hatched and he went off with them though. We have a pair of tame ordered Canada geese at our house. They love nothing more than to be misted with the hose. When the gander gets the chance his favorite thing to do is grab the end of the hose in his mouth and let it spray down his throat, this can get rather irritating when your trying to fill the pool but o well it's enormously entertaining. We have a border collie who likes to herd waterfowl. So one time she got out and saw the pilgrims out in the yard. Well apparently she didn't take into consideration that they had babies. We had a young muscovy drake a year or two ago. Well we also have our tame pair of canada's. The canada gander is very proud and feals the nead to beat up those who can't defend themselves (one time I came out to both canada's standing over a duckling they had flipped on its back taking turns biting it) any way the young muscovy was just hitting maturity and all of sudden took off chasing the canada gander. Well the canada gander was very confused and took off running, he ran around the barn and came back around, the indignant look he had was priceless, he just sat there ruffling his feathers. Unfortunetly the muscovy drake decided to take after a wild canada across the horse pasture and one of the horses got exited and killed the drake, that was the final straw for that horse and we sold him. I'll post more of my stories as I think of them, in the meantime share yours!!!
