We have 2 chinese geese - a male and a female. The male has become extremely vocal, even when there is no threat around. We live in a development around a pond surrounded by 7 other houses. The neighbors are now starting to complain. The male goose has taken to coming up to our patio door and 'shrieking' relentlessly for what seems like hours. At first I thought he was asking for food but he persists even after feeding. He is healthy. Doesn't appear to be in pain. Now he has been approaching and sometimes even charging at the neighbors. He apparently went for one of their children also. More recently he has started making his noises at 6am every morning - I'm not a morning person! Personally, I like everything about the goose except his noise level. He is friendly for the most part. I speak to him. He follows me around the yard when I am working in it. He looks after the female goose who has a bad leg and hobbles slightly. He is protective of her particularly when she is laying/ sitting in her nest. Does anyone have any suggestions on traing the male goose to be quieter? I don't want the neighbors to get so upset that they ask us to get rid of it. Thanks.
