gander mounting gander...should I be concerned?
I have 6 African geese, all been together since hatching this last July 1st. 3 geese and 3 ganders. Problem is, one of the ganders harasses one of the others alot. I know they're both males, as they've mounted the females, and I've seen their male organs. The depth of the harassment is disturbing to me, as the perpetrator mounts the poor other guy and makes the usual sounds as if he's made "contact". Is this normal behavior, and will it resolve, soon I hope? I feel bad for the poor "underdog" as he really tries to run and defend himself, but gets caught sometimes. He's smaller than the "mounter". Is the "bad guy" just confused and thinks this is an attractive female? The 3rd gander is the biggest, and tries to break it up, but not always successful. Please tell me this will be over soon!
