Redbud was a goose my original flock. I knew him as a gosling because of a unique expression he would give me when he looked at me. He was called Buddy when he was a gosling because he was sweet and liked to cuddle. Throughout my hatching I encountered certain geese that I could tell
I felt reluctant to order Chinese or African geese from a hatchery because I did not want to have undesirable traits that I would have to breed back out. I went with the plan of getting new bloodlines from Atwoods because they would not be totally different from my original flock of geese. A few days ago we checked out a few Atwoods in search of some goslings. I was hoping for about 12 in order to have quite a few females. We came to the Atwoods in Coweta and found 5. I did not want the expedition to be fruitless so I bought all of them. As we went home I began to bond with them. Once they were put out on the grass I found them to be friendly little things. I see some Chinese traits already - some are smaller than others - but I am hopeful that they will have what I am breeding for. I will talk about what I am breeding for later on but for now I will be talking about my five goslings. I am excited about them and would like to introduce them.
I began my goose raising with one goose named Willow. I had no idea what geese ate. I did not give geese much thought when I was considering what animal I should raise. I am glad we decided to get a goose when we saw it at Atwoods. I may have never known how awesome geese were if we had not. Willow became close to us as he had no goose companion. We had planned to get him geese on May 9. Unfortunately, we lost Willow before he could ever have those friends. We did not know for certain whether Willow was a boy or a girl. Willow's loss was hard for us all. It was suggested that the flock be named Willow's Flock - in honor of him. On the day we lost Willow - April 27, 2018 - we went from Atwoods to Atwoods in search of another goose or two. We finally found an Atwoods with goslings. Fifteen goslings.
my name is Emily
I have twenty-eight geese. I hatch a bunch of goslings because I want a lot of people to have geese. I do not see them everywhere but I want to! The goslings are the sweetest baby birds I know! The adult males are proud and can be cranky but have their sweet moments while the females are shy and sweet all at the same time.
