    Are these a new pair you are introducing? If not geese have like little click flocks and then they all free range together. But if new it takes time to introduce new geese to a flock.

    When it´s not breeding season, mine hang around together. Breeding season comes and they separate into their groups and get quite picky about space. I´ve not had a problem about introducing adults, but then I´ve only done it out of breeding season, and I imagine it´s just about coming into the season for yours? They´ll get it sorted, I´m sure.
