I just picked up my new babies this morning. There is 18 Fancy Goslings from Holderread Waterfowl Farm. It could be any geese they sale. Do you have any guesses as to what they are. I love the little dark one. I now have 26 geese. Cool!

Some of them look like they might be some sort of Americans from the beak color.. And maybe some sebbies? What color are the beaks on the dark one and the dark saddleback?

I could be completely wrong, though.
I am right about one thing though.. They are ADORABLE!

PS, what kind of food is that? Looks interesting.

The food is just chopped up organic spring mix lettuce. I thought that was a nice variety of tender greens. They told me to feed greens first. It is floating in water, cornsyrup (I used all my honey up) and probiotics.
