Its a beautiful day today, just a few degrees about freezing which is very unusual for this time of year. All the birds were out enjoying the nice weather so I snapped some pics to share with you all here


The shed where all the poultry is:


Two Muscovies sitting on top of the bale pile:


A few of the chickens dust bathing:


Some of the birds picking through the grass, I still can't believe we have grass showing. We should be knee deep in snow by now!


The cat picking through the scrap bucket:


Some of the birds who didn't want to come out:


DJ, my ISA Brown hen letting me know exactly how she felt about me taking her picture:


The Sparrows waiting in the tree for me to get away from the bird feeder so they can keep eating:


The geese, a pair of Pilgrims and 1 Toulouse:


Peggie, my Pilgrim goose:


One of the Muscovies:


They usually hang out around here because its sheltered from the wind by the bale stacks:


Some of the ducks:

Loved seeing your animals! I kind of laughed at the one with DJ - She makes it so you can't mistake what she's thinking. "Talk to the butt."


Question for you: How do you like keeping geese? What I mean to say is, how well behaved are they compared to the other birds? I think geese are pretty, but I hesitate to ever have any because the only experience I have with them is to be backing away while a goose hisses and tries to come up and bite. So I thought I'd ask. It could just be that I've only ever been around bad-tempered ones, too.

All of my geese are very docile, they don't like to be handled but aren't aggressive at all. I raised the Pilgrim female from a gosling and the other two I got as older geese. I find them to be much smarter then the other birds, both the chickens and the ducks. They are very curious too. If your getting geese I'd recommend getting them young.
