    I hatched this little one from eggs a friend gave me. It has black feet, black bill and black around his eyes. What do you think it is? Canadian maybe?

    I wonder,does anyone know the name of the round leaf plants that the gosling is standing on? I call it goose weed because my geese loved to eat it to the point that it no longer lives in my lawn. All I know is that is a fast grower and starts late winter here in NC. If I knew a real name for it I might be able to get seeds or plants to reestabish a patch which I would fence off for gosling use only. The little ones love it! Sorry about changing the subject.

    It might be chick weed. It's a very early plant and will dissappear when the weather turns hot.
