lost it.. should have helped sooner or knew a whole lot more. It was good practice though.
Went outside to check the girls this morning, and low and behold one of the 1st yr brooders either 1. new the baby was dead and cracked it open cause the shell is missing or 2. someone stepped on it while shuffling the eggs and busted it ....but there right outside the nest was a poor dead gosling...the are not due yet not until the next wk or so...but the poor thing had its little webbed feet and feathers....
It was sad!!! It would have been a gray
That does make me feel better, celtic. But not about the baby..:( Poor baby... She must be getting to hot in the barn because every day she is moving all of them closer to the door. Straw and all. Good looking nest, but man that has to be alot of work. They have to be getting close to hatch time with the development of that baby.. If anymore get broken though I will kidnap the remaining eggs and then ya'll will have to walk me through the hatching.....oh my!!! I would be like a toddler...keep you posted!!
poor goose.. that is alot of work!
