    Man they are growing so fast!!! Trina has to take baths in the tub now, she can jump out of the sink already! And she has almost outgrown her diaper.

    Sure are cute fuzzybird! Do they follow you around the yard?

    Oh those turkeys are a hoot!

    Here comes a few pics of my bathers. Goslings are five weeks old now.
    And they really let me know the pool needed water - noisy critters!

    What cuties!!! You say those guys are 5 weeks?! Hoy cow! No wonder it seems like Trina is growing like mad! They look a little fuzzy, do they still have baby down?
    At what age do they reach full size?

    Thanks Kukupecpec!
    Yes, they still have baby down. Seems like every day they are growing a bit larger. Just now, I am not sure when they'll be fully grown. Imagine about two months?

    Hey everyone! I love the goose forum just reading and learning! :) I had a question though... Has anyone ever had a chicken raise your goslings? I have two goslings that just hatched and I have several hens wanting to set and I was wondering if it would work to put them under a hen and let her raise them?

    Nope don't think the hens would accept them or vise versa. Hens have to have been sitting for a while before you can take their eggs and slip babies under them and if Goslings have imprinted on you I don't think they would accept the hens,

    Yup they do. I call, "goose goose" to them and most of the time they follow me.

    With three other people around sometimes Trina get's confused but she is always following SOMEone around. Unless she is going after the dog food LOL

    Great pictures of the juvenile gosling waiting then jumping in one at a time and NO to the last... So how long did that water stay crystal clear? [​IMG]
