Mother Goose


Even though she's not really their mother, and they are already as big as she is, our young geese follow her everywhere....

I like the color. It must take forever to feed all of your animals.

Ol farm geese. Nice--They can get mean, I hope yours aren't. MB

Yup, they're our geese, webradio. Mother Goose was hatched on our farm and we got the other 3 when they were goslings, last spring.

It actually doesn't take long to feed, Jim, because all the birds eat the same kind of grain, so we just have a big feeder (my dad made it and it holds 150 pounds) set up and they help themselves. It only needs to be refilled every couple of weeks or so.

Our geese are very friendly, MB, timid actually. But, don't tell anyone that - I figure they help keep intruders away.
