    I have a goaling that I got from the poultry auction. I have no idea what he is as I wasn't able to talk to the seller. And does anyone know how old he or she is?

    Also, this guy follows me everywhere which I know happens but he's very obsessive about it. He will scream bloody murder when I leave his LoS and when I put him up for the night he screams for a very long time. I am worried he's gonna stress himself to much. He also doesn't like grass and doesn't care for water other than drinking it. He has been that way since the first night I brought him home. He even tried to get out to me when he was on the table for sale.. idk what to do I love him but this obsessive behavior is driving my husband nuts who won't let him in the house. I think it's cute but my husband thinks it's annoying. But he doesn't want to go noore then 5ft from me even to get a drink..

    He's so cute! Do you have any other geese or ducks for him to live with? Birds are more comfortable in flocks so he will be very uncomfortable being by himself. That's why he's so clingy with you!

    I don’t have my goslings yet (2 more weeks), but others have mentioned that a mirror and stuffed animals help calm them down.
