    Our goslings just turned 12 weeks, this is our first time raising geese, or anything for that matter. Thought we'd share some of their pictures with our fellow geese lovers:

    LOL they are fascinated by those ice cubes. What a great idea to just dump a bag in the yard on a hot day, I'm going to do it.

    They are lovely birds, and you get just as imprinted on them as they get on you [​IMG]

    Wow, your place is clean and neat... How do you keep the edge of the tank so tiddy? Beautiful birds, don't you just love when they put their foot back when relaxing? Jennifer

    Thanks for the compliments. Our yard no longer looks clean ever since they started to molt about a week ago, it's now covered by white feather. It's so great to have people I can share the joy with, most of my friends just laughed at me when I try to tell them about my pet geese...​

    Quote:Yes, ours love ice cubes since they're tiny babies. You should definitely give it a try, only problem is they all melted w/n 20min since it's like 100dg outside... feel so bad for the kids, wish I could have them inside.

    Quote:Sorry Mahsmaj, can't help you with the pond bank question. It's a community pond, no idea how they kept it perfect. It's on our daily walking route.... and here's a short video of my geese out for walks
