    I have 4 Embden geese. Three males and one female. All were raised together from birth. I've had them for over a year. Always stayed together as a foursome without fail. A couple weeks ago they started being a threesome and a loner. Now it is like that all the time. He is not allowed to be anywhere near the group. Any ideas what he could have done?

    You have 2 many boys to the one female.

    Every year I have the same problem with my ducks,
    Its like they just got to kick some one out.

    They are a flock that is housed and I let free range together in good weather.
    however we have 4 boys and 6 girls
    Last year they made one boy stay away it was very hard to watch
    this year they made 2 of the boys stay away I had enough of that and seperated
    them into 2 groups and divided the girls, and all was well.
    When they finally gave up on romancing
    in the late summer I put them all together again. And everything is back to normal.

    You need 2 more girls maybe you can find a couple near you
