Okay, I am VERY new to this whole geese thing. I have a gander that was very sweet to the people who raised him. He is a four month old African and we've only had him a week or so. At first he was sweet, much like a lap dog. Now he bites me every chance he gets. I'm not talking the little explore with his beak kind of bites...I'm talking the bite so hard he leaves a deep purple bruises and makes my friends ask if my husband is beating me kinds of bites. I've read that you should grab his beak and hang on, but I've also read that you should smack him, then again, I've also read to put him on his back. What works for a biting gander? Will he always be such a grouch? I would really like to get along with him and make friends.
