    Geese can often get nippy during the breeding season. Here are some of the friendlier breeds:

    Pomeranians

    Sebbies

    Toulouse

    Cotton Patch

    You will want to stay away from:

    African

    Chinese

    Embdens

    even then you dont want to always have them in the same confined space. Ganders can become aggressive enough to injure and or kill ducks/drakes.
