This morning, our intern, Jacob, showed up at the house with a gosling in a box. Our geese appear to have finished their laying/hatching for the season and they had seven little goslings to show for it. But one little gosling was having a bit of a hard time walking so Jacob thought he might stand a better chance in a different home. When he took it out of the box, Abigail immediately took to it, and Leeann captured one of the cutest pictures EVER:
We took a little time to play with the goose on the floor:
And then we decided to put the goose in with our new baby ducks. Four of our six duck eggs hatched, and we are raising four little ducks in a small brooder. We have added the gosling to the mix, and it seems to be going well. No one seems to care that he isn't a duck and that they aren't goslings. We'll keep you posted on how this little gang continues to do!
