Angus and Kate are such fun additions to my flock of chickens. I bought a pair (sexed) from Ideal Poultry, from their last hatch of the season. Named 'em William and Kate, but, sadly, William died within a couple of weeks. Ideal refunded his cost, because they were done hatching geese. I looked for Toulouse geese on Craigs List, locally, and found another gosling, reportedly a male. He was a few weeks older than Kate, so I didn't put them together for a few weeks. His name is Angus (or "Ang-goose") as my friends say. Once Angus joined Kate, they decided they really like each other. My worry is that I might have misidentified Kate as the surviving gosling, and I have two ganders. They look so much alike! I think Kate may grow larger than Angus, too. Her neck is slightly larger, around, than his.... Anyway, they are so pretty, and while they don't need to be immediately next to each other, they do roam together, mostly, and sleep side by side. Their conversations at each greeting, if they've been off exploring more than 15 feet apart, are adorable. Kate snores in her sleep, which is a silly sound indeed. They break up chicken squabbles and do NOT like the roosters mounting the hens at all. Neither honks much at all, although one or the other will honk an alert when someone or something comes onto the property (small neighbor dogs, so far). When they get the Zoomies it cracks me up. Two big ol' geese, wings outstretched, running at high speed, feet slapping against the ground. Gosh, I hope they are a pair, because I can't decide what versions of "Kate" and "Angus" would suffice, should I need to rename them. They do know their names. They seem to like hanging out with my largest roosters, which are Jersey Giants. And the "packing peanut" cockerels which were shipped with Kate are allowed to snuggle with her when she naps. (They thought she was their mom when they were all babies, and would get on her back... She doesn't let them do THAT any more.) Please keep your fingers crossed for me that Kate is a goose and Angus is a gander!
