It may be that you had over a certain critical number. I haven't had
that problem with mine- even all 5 of the roosters get along
reasonably well. Goldenrod runs a tight ship- he regularly kicks his
brothers' tail feathers, but pretty much ignores Tie Dye, and Chewy,
who are both Banties. As far as the hens, the three Buff Orpingtons
are pretty much Queens of the Roost, and otherwise hang out with
Goldenrod and the other 5 full sized hens, while the banties have
their own little clique.

I've just got to figure out how to socialize the younger geese with my
flock of ducks and geese. Thinking of penning them next to each other
at night, so they're more used to each other. Don't mind them sorting
themselves out, but I don't want anybody hurt, either. What's funny,
is if Margali's geese are the breed I suspect they are, they're going
to wind up much larger than the ducks and my Romans- and they'll be
fairly aggressive.
