    Awwwwwwwwwww my Chinese Grey Gander, Jack, who is a house goose has just come up to me whilst I'm looking at the forum and wanted to come up on my lap.[​IMG]
    Imagine a fully grown Chinese gander sat on your lap while you're trying to use the computer!!![​IMG]
    He had a look at what I was doing, decided that was ok and went back to his previous duties which was looking after the 30 or so chicken chicks which hatched over the last 4 days!!! [​IMG]
    Ever since he was little Jack has taken on this role and every batch that hatches are 'Jack's' babies, and he guards them with his life!!!!!![​IMG]

    Here's a few photos for you to see what I mean!!!

    When he was only 8 weeks old!!!

    do you take him down to the shops with you?
    he looks like a concerned father with those chickies.

    Quote:Yes he comes to the shops, down the pub, we even took him on holiday camping with us last month!!!
    He's so funny with the chickies, he tells you off if you start picking them up!!!
    What better reason for a holiday in the UK than to meet Jack the Goose!!!

    Yes, I read the part about taking him down the pub.
    that is cool.
    that is an excellent reason to holiday in the UK!
    Not only do I love geese, but I am also an Anglophile!
