    i had 3 hatch on the 14th and 17th -- lost 1 almost immediately -- it looked like it had one of mom's feathers tangled around its leg and she tried to free it and made matters worse -- not good --- If I'd been a little more nosy to see what was going on under her, I might've caught it soon enough to save it (yet another 'chalk it up to experience') -- i let mom and the babies out with dad and aunt/uncle for a little while yesterday because it was the first day we've been above freezing since they hatched .. the video's a little drawn out but i thought I'd post it anyway --- I'm amazed how they seem oblivious to the cold...

    No, no, no, the video ended way too soon!

    I could've watched them for hours - happy geese and goslings in the snow!

    Dang, you have babies already? When did they start laying? They sure are cute, we'd like more video!

    Wow! I hope to have some goslings in a couple of months. I just hope there is no snow then. No breeding yet that I know of. I think it will start soon. Cute goslings! Congrats!
