My Grandbaby has been raised with lots and lots of different kinds of animals. My house is kind of like a zoo and he lives with me. Most of the time he could care less with all the turkeys and chickens that I brood in the house. But when he seen the geese he wanted to get into there big tub to play with them. We did not let him. He was only allowed to touch them and let them touch him. My Grandson will be three years old on June 4th. He has never learned to talk. He does not try to talk. It seemed like maybe these geese might be just the thing to bring this quite little boy to say something. He sure likes them. I think he thinks they are ducks like ones he sees on TV. He always loved the old disney cartoon the ugly duckling.
