I hatched two sets of goose eggs last month. One was a mixed mutt batch that was supposed to be embdens. The other was a batch of eggs to test fertility and ended up being brown chinese mix - we think. They are no longer in need of a brooder or a small holding pen. They have graduated to a chain link kennel until they get some size on them and can defend themselves to wander the pasture. I move this kennel one kennel width daily so they have fresh grass to graze. The water in their pool is poured around the plants in my garden. My little boy thinks he should get to climb in the pool with them. They are so entertaining to watch. I love the 3rd photo where my little boy is talking to them and look like they are going to talk back. If you have pasture to raise geese you will love having them around. One of them is feathering out with mature feathers that are very grey. It will be interesting to see how thye all turn out. Anyone know how to sex a goose? Edited to add - The 3 largest goslings hatched on 3/28/08. the 2 smaller goslings hatched on 4/8/08. Here are photos of the baby goats and the blue orpington chicks.
