Goslings

Here are what looks like to be "This year's goslings".  The female is still sitting on the nest but nothing has hatched so it seems it will be the same as last year in that she will sit and sit until all the eggs under her are broken or gone bad and then she will just get up and leave them, so next year we will definitely incubate all our goose eggs ourselves and not leave them for the geese to sit on.  You definitely learn from experience.  These two are gorgeous though and we are going to rear them ourselves and not give them to the adult geese to look after.  Difficult to tell at the moment but they both look as if they might have grey feathers, which could mean they are females, we are hoping for males though as they are for the table and need to be bigger.
