Another hen suprised us with 17 little chicks
My buff pair hatched 4 more buff African goslings (sexes are unknown as both parents are buff).
These are sloppy Joes parents
Serv! Good to see you. Thanks for the congrats. I am super excited to have a white african baby! I do not have any more guaranteed pure white eggs left, but I have a few eggs from my white goose cooking under a broody and I may get lucky? I also have a few dewlaps cooking under a broody, so I may also get another dewlap or two before season is over. If not, I'm still pleased with the two babies that I hatched this year and there's always next year.
Love the pics! Your babies are getting so big. What a fabulous surprise to hatch out four more buff goslings. Congrats!! What's your total buff count now? Also congrats on the 17 chicks. That is a huge clutch for one hen! I had a muscovy march off her nest yesterday with 6 babies. I was relieved it was not double that as she usually hatches a dozen babies at a time.
Serv, those are amazing numbers. Will you keep them all?
With my two new additions, my total goose count is at 34, which is about how many I've been maintaining for the last 4 years. Still have a few more weeks until season is over and I hope to hatch another dewlap, but if not there is always next year.
