    After the upseting loss of our baby Sebbie and having 1 lone sebbie I decided to looking for another gosling to keep our loner company. I found BYC member Willjg who was looking to rehome some of his goslings. So the family took the almost hour drive to meet him and see his addiction. [​IMG] We brought home 2 Embden goslings. A male and female and they seemed really scared at first, but once home and running around the back yard, they fit right in. They had a dip in the kiddie pool, were talking to us and were even following us around. The 2 of them never left each others side, but did hang out a bit with the sebbie. I'm hoping the 3 of them will become great buddies.
    Pics tomorrow as we were busy building another coop today and didn't stop to take pictures yet.

    *It was great meeting you Bill. Thanks for the tour of your place and for the eggs that should go into the bator tonight. I'll let you know what happens. [​IMG] *

    They'll bond in no time. Give them a day or two and they'll all get along. Congrats on your new babies!

    Thank you! We've not had geese before and I wasn't sure I wanted to get into geese, but I must say these guys are just so adorable! [​IMG] There are still times I see the sebbie hanging out by him/herself, but then I also find the 3 goslings together as well.

    Here is our lone Sebbie that we've had for a week now.

    These babies are so fun to watch. I would say they have definitely bonded. The 3 of them are almost always together or with our 3 Pekins and our BEI. I love seeing them run across the yard with wings outstretched. I even believe I heard a "honk" yesterday.
