    I have several Sebs (I love them!!). I keep them penned at night for their protection and let them out in the morning. My yard looks like it snowed! They are losing their old feathers I guess and getting new ones. They are really looking good. Was working on my flower bed today and took a new role of paper towels out to keep wiping the sweat out of my eyes. Went inside, forgetting the towels and when I went out to feed, one of my 'sweet' dogs had found it and shred it all over the yard. Now I have paper towels all over to blend with the feathers. Oh well, at least the towels were white.[​IMG] (I did, however, pick up the shredded toweling. My back tells me I must have done a good job![​IMG]

    Snow huh? That's one way to look at it. I keep thinking my dad has run one of the geese over with the lawn mower, I assume eventually they'll stop molting! [​IMG]

    Rake them if you like to rake. I just put my lawn mower to 'mulch' and mow them into the lawn they are high in nitrogen and are good for grass.
