    Saw my loan pet goose, who has been setting on some eggs. Hear her honking look outside there she is chasing a cottentail rabbit across my yard. A good 100 yards, guess it got to near her nest.

    wish I could have got pics. never seen anything like that.

    Was thinking a dog was after her, may have to take her rabbit hunting this fall. guess she a goose beagle [​IMG]

    No babies, she is the only goose I have. This rabbit was running full speed with her about 6 foot behind.

    Bet if I got a video of it, I would have had it put on TV.

    Think it just got to near her nest, but never saw anything like that, and have had birds most of my 127 years!!!

    In that case... I think she needs a mate. [​IMG]

    I agree--either a mate or some 'good' eggs! Sounds like she would be a great momma....

    Get that girl some "good" eggs, but be careful when you switch them, or, it'll be you instead of the bunny bandit...lol..

    Well she must want to be a mother goose.

    Today she was off her nest, now she is free range. She is my pet she was following be around.
    I was gather peafowl egg today,and marking egg. Will I set 4 egg on the ground from one pen. As i was gather other eggs from another pen. When I got back to pick the eggs up, she was setting on them,making a nest in the grass.

    I took the eggs she follow me all the way to the house !!

    Quote:No she thinks I am her mate. She thinks I am going to take her place on the nest, as the gander .
