    Nothing too special, just Domestic Brown Chinese; unique as the hen refused to go broody and these chicks were hatched in an incubator. I wanted to see how they would interact the goslings by placing them in a pen adjoining their yard (which is the whole yard) at two weeks of age, they immediately bonded with them and are now a tight family group.

    Lovely family!

    Brown Chinese geese are indeed too special. They are so very beautiful with their rich brown eyes and feathers and graceful necks.
