    This one will rock your world. Last spring a Canada Goose couple nesting at the Wheatlands Apartment complex in Illinois gave birth to 19 goslings. I interviewed residents who live in the apartments and they claim the family is not the melding of two families but actually just one.

    I searched the complex and the adjacent forest preserve for what must have been one massive nest, but found nothing.

    I am delighted to report that ALL GOSLINGS survived to adulthood! Yay!

    She looks to be very healthy, I have a gander going on 7yrs old and I'm so hoping I have many many more years with him, they are just so very special. How many geese do you have?

    I have seven of them and it always amazes me how they stick together when a predator comes leaking about ....
    One of them lost his goose and likes to pick at the others feathers ......

    It is really hard to get a photo of them together so I had to put out some rice with
    some mixed vegetables to get everyone together for a photo op .....
