After many, many years of incubators, brooder boxes, dog pen, and free range, we have managed to keep 3 geese (out of who knows how many eggs...100 perhaps?). Two of these geese made the duck house their home a month and a half ago. I boarded up the surrounding walkways to keep the dogs, raccoons, and other pedators away. We knew they had lost a few eggs (turtle, perhaps?), but yesterday WE SAW THE FIRST GOSLING!
And then today:
Our first set of naturally hatched goslings!!!
