The Gosling are big now ....
... bigger than their Mum, Mother Goose the Hyline hen.
She's a good Mum, gradually loosing the apron strings now and letting them play all over Chicken World together. But any sign of danger, any dog or cat that gets too close and makes them chirp louder than their normal constant chunnering and she's right back by their sides.
The only problem we have at the moment, is that she expects them to be able to roost now and tries to lead them into the henhouse each night, they of course, with their webbed feet, cannot roost and sleep sitting on the ground of the broody house. It's frustrating being a Mum sometimes!!
A little film of life in Chicken World at the moment.
The banging you can hear in the background of the film is Lovely Hubby making this, a lovely new residence for our growing offspring. Goose Mansion, shortly to be installed in Chicken World, complete with a roosting bar for Mother Goose!!
