So about maybe 6 months ago, I got 3 baby goslings. We named them Fruitcake, (top gosling) shortbread, (the sweet one) and Gumdrop. (the not so smart one)They were the cutest little things ever and very affectionate. Although my mom and I both took care of them, they seemed to like me best and would stay up all night crying for me. When I'd come downstairs they'd peep like I was their savior. As they grew up, they grew less affectionate,but still enjoyed laying on my legs and whatnot on the grass while my mom pulled weeds in the garden. But once all their fuzz had disappeared and I had to start going to work,cutting down on my time to spend with them,they started becoming very aggressive. Fruitcake started going after me on occasion and biting at my legs and rain boots. From this we decided fruitcake was obviously a gander. My mom had assumed that it was my polka-dot rain boots and bright orange garden gloves and perhaps the bright red bowl I was bringing out the the blackberry bushes every other day to pick them, since they already have an aversion to the orange kiddie pool we drag around so they can swim,as well and the green lawn seat. So I stopped showing them any colorful or large items and bought a pair of black rain boots, careful to avoid any signs of aggression towards fruitcake. Then shortbread began to get very unruly, stealing food from the garden even when she knew it wasn't allowed. Now, recently, she has started attacking me, too. The other day, she latched onto my boots with her beak and started beating me with her wings. Any time I try to go in there to change their food or water, they charge at me. Having severe anxiety, I freak out and run away crying every time. Gumdrop is very reserved and sweet still, but I dont want the other two teaching her this is OK. They still treat my mom with respect. Why do they hate me? How do I teach them that this isn't OK? They used to love me the best, now they won't even let me into the pen. I just want to know how to regain their respect.
