Dutch, maybe do both? lol
Julie, congrats! Just read your comment to my canadian geese pics on the other thread. Is it true they will move in permanently? Will they eventually integrate with my flock or set up separate flocks in same area? I only moved onto this property last summer but have not seen wild geese around here until the past couple of weeks.
For those who do not read the other thread.... here is the post and pics:
I had an interesting morning with my ganders & african juvenile flock. The flock is now in a routine of sleeping overnight by ponds in pasture, then coming up to feeding area when I feed horses in the morning. Since we turned babies out, we have seen a pair of canadian geese attempt to integrate with flock... and this morning there are now 2 pairs in my pasture! The one pair appears to be setting up a nest and the other pair tried to come up to my birds. One gander ran them off while the other gander herded them away. I found it very fascinating, but I have no idea what it all means. I tried to get pics... they didn't turn out too well, but I think you can see. The first pic is where the one gander is starting his charge while the other is herding babies away. The 2nd pic is after gander finished his charge and returning with the one canadian pair together by fence and the other pair (which appear to be setting up a nest?) is just behind them. Oh, and please disregard all the tires.... that is our drag that hubby forgot to put away the other week.
