    I let the baby geese out of their pen the other day and Poppa Goose has stolen them all! One still loves me but the others couldn't care less. They grow up so fast [​IMG]

    LOLs. At the moment, I cant wait for my two to join the goose family. I love them to death, but its like having a houseful of toddlers.

    I love baby geese but they do grow up too fast. I never move chicks outside until they are at least 8 weeks old. The oldest gosling is about 5 weeks old and they've been outside for almost 3 weeks [​IMG]

    Aw!

    *pat pat*

    Even Binka is getting a bit more independent now. She LOVES me, but she is now OK with leaving my side to say hi to other people.

    *sniffle*

    I might end up stealing them back...Poppa took them down to the pond this morning. Judging by the looks of them, he didn't let them in the water, but the pond is a good ways from the house so I think it's too far. Mama Goose is on a nest near the pond...when I went to gather the kids they were standing near the nest chatting with Mama. So apparently Poppa took the babies down there to introduce them to the little woman [​IMG]
