Yesterday, I came home from college for fall break and saw my geese for the first time since August. When I left, Luna my toulouse was big but not completely feathered out. My four chinese were only about two weeks old, so they were yellow, small, and squeaky still. Yesterday, I walked into their pen.. And they're HUGE! While at college, I got no pictures of their growth, just descriptions from my mom. I was still thinking of them as the little yellow things that I left.. Not the giant white geese. Want to know the amazing thing? They remember me! When I first walked in, they were wary.. But as I started to call "goosegoosegoose", they got excited and started running at me. When I picked up Luna, the goose that I raised from right out of the incubator, she immediately put her head on my shoulder and started chewing on my glasses like old times. The babies (or not-so-babies) all tried to get out to get to me. Let me tell you, I was amazed. I took Luna and the friendliest Chinese into our living room with me and we hung out. Now this morning, it's obvious that Luna is mad at me. She refuses to come up to me now and just watches me from the corner. The chinese however are coming up to me still, loving on me, etc.. And now I took the friendliest little one out again, and she's sitting with me on the couch. I'm going to have to work on Luna later, but I'm loving having my geese back. Not looking forward to leaving them on Sunday.. But now that I know they'll remember, it won't be so bad. Will post pictures later! PS, one of the chinese has a dewlap..? Any comments on this?
