You are so right. Mine would pick at me sometimes, about like a monkey cleaning another monkey. lol Even though they were not really biting me, sometimes it would hurt! A couple did go after one of the kids in the family one day. You never heard such a commotion until I rescued the kid! LOL<quoted text>
They make great "watch dogs" as well, honking loudly if anyone comes into the yard. A goose attack is something to behold! Their bites are pretty painful, and the geese are relentless warriors. The intruder has only one option....RUN!
The last three I had would come to the door and peck on it like they were knocking. lol They got a little out of hand, when I would mow the yard they would follow me around flying. It got dangerous! I was afraid they were going to hit a car head on. They are really some neat creatures. I hope to have some more one of these days. Maybe when I get my chickens. They are really sweet. One bird I have never had that I also want is guineas.
