Growing up around a farm, geese are a staple. Betsy was our trusty goose. She was not, however, friendly. Look at her the wrong way and she would chase you and try to peck you with her huge beak. Despite their bad tempers, geese are wonderful and loyal “guard dogs”. They will alert you when someone they don’t know is in your yard and sometimes even protect their domain from snakes and small predators. (I know that my goose killed more than one snake crawling its way towards the chicken house). I would recommend them to anyone with a wide array of farm animals, though I recommend trying to find a calmer one than Betsy.
