The Gosling Gang
The Gosling Gang
Every year we take on a small gaggle of goslings.
 Gosling Bully BoyEarly in May 08 a friend of ours hatched 11 goslings, we purchased them to rear for our Christmas market. 
 

Goslings are “funny” creatures to rear, they drown if they get wet before their baby down is water proof and without a goose and gander to protect them vulnerable to predators. Three of the goslings were small and did not grow, they died. One of the bigger ones fell prey to a carrion crow and 1 just disappeared!

The 6 that are left are growing fast and are very inquisitive, they spend their day grazing in the garden and exploring the farm yard
