    I have a 3 week old gosling that was bring raised with 8 ducklings. It acts like a duckling and is afraid when I reach for him ( or her). I had three others that were handled much more but I was wondering if it's too late to handle him now to get him back to thinking humans are okay. When I call for Him he comes to me and when I take him out to visit the big ducks and chickens he follows, but of course when I want to pick him up he screams like I'm going to hurt him. I'm hoping time will solve it since he's still young. I don't want him to grow up to be an aggressive Goose. I've separated him from the other ducklings and spend quite a few hours every day with him
