    Hey everyone. Im so happy! I just wanted yall to know I now have 3 eggs in the barrel nest . I saw the pair actually breed a week ago and noticed they were talking to me way more than usual. Well of course I have been looking in there everyday and saw where she had made a nest. But it looked kinda pushed up so I thought, What the heck, let me feel in there. Whoo!Hoo! I dont know how many more she will lay before she sets and I never pull eggs on first time with a new species anyway. But hopefully The next pic I put on here are of goslings. Just wanted to share my excitement with my BYC friends!!!

    Thanks Lisa. She layed more. I am up to six now.So you're set Karen.Lol! She set on them all day as far as I know today. I will check for more again if or when she gets off the next time. I dont know how many is a normal clutch. This is their first time so 6 may be it. Ill keep yall updated of course. Also luckily throughout it all they just talked alot more but no charges or threats made toward me whatsoever. Cant say that for all the other geese Ive kept.[​IMG]
