Residents of Hempsteade,
Please refrain from feeding the geese around the community. This may seem like a fun activity to do, and you may feel like you are helping the geese, but there are many cons to doing so.
- A young gosling's diet will determine his taste preferences as he grows up, if he's spoiled on purchased feed or particularly lush grass while young, he'll probably refuse the nastier weeds as an adult.
- Feeding geese near your unit can cause them to rely on coming around your unit for food source. They are very noisy and can make a big mess while they are there.
- Geese like all animals can become aggressive.
- They are insatiable curious and they nibble on everything; including bike seats, patio furniture, and other belongings, which is not only a nuisance, but dangerous to their health.
