    Whats happening to my goose/gander ?
    It is shaking/trembling its wings like its a nervous disorder.
    I purchased 2 goose (supposed couple) in November 2015. One of them started laying in february and is sitting on some infertile eggs right now. Infertile because this other one (more clean) is also a goose not gander. SO this saturday i bought 1 gander (supposed) which has some wing problem i guess (the one with droppy/shaky wings).
    Sorry I could not decide which video to upload so i uploaded them all.

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and note that he seems to always be doing it where the goose can see him do it. I haven't seen this activity before, but I noticed him stop doing it, walk over and reposition himself nearer where she was, then start it again. I wonder if it's some sort of mating ritual thing? Does he do it when the goose isn't around?

    I havnt separated them.

    but I saw the new goose mounting the other one.
    So its confirmed that he IS a He.
    and may be this is mating ritual of geese.
    the gander is attracting goose ?

    @loverofhatching the motions the goose is making is an action that they do to dry and cool the body. Most waterfowl do it, some just more than others.
