One morning when the sun was high in the sky a set of goslings was put outside to enjoy the fresh green grass and cool air. They were put inside a fence so they were safe from all kinds of things. Several of the adult geese stood on the opposite side of the fence wishing that they could get to the goslings.
One of these was the youngest of the flock named Gingko. She had an obsession with goslings and would not leave the fence. The other ladies of the flock also wanted to meet the goslings but were not so obsessed that they gave up their food and pond for them. Fortunately for Gingko her human decided to try out some of the female geese to see who would be best with the goslings - if any would. Tupelo was first put in the fenced area on trial. Tupelo seemed to be rather uninterested with the goslings and took advantage of the grass. If a gosling strayed too close she was then terrified and would peck it to keep it away from her. Seeing this the human decided to try Gingko. Gingko was thrilled to be with the goslings. She was immediately comfortable with them and was eating grass with them.
I had posted about Rowan when he was called Dandelion and about his gray marking on each side of his head that made him look like he had eyebrows. I was wondering if this would affect his stripe when he was older.
I believe the eyebrow markings were an indication of how his stripe would run from his beak to under his eye then to the top of his head and then down along the back of his neck.
my name is Emily
I have twenty-six 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.
