Re: Update on Lady Chatsworth ("Peeper")


I think he's probably just an opportunist. "What? You don't have to fly thousands of miles every year just to eat? I like that... er, you... babe!"

Yes, they do mate for life. Lady Chatsworth showed up at our farm last
year as a baby. She had down, not feathers. (We still have no idea where
she came from) So this is her first mate. I know nothing about the
Canadian goose who stayed to be with her. He may be young too. Or, he
may have lost his mate. I have no idea.

Shreck 2 - the donkey and the dragon had babies. He called them his
"little mutant babies". Now THEY were cute!

Subject: [CHAT] Update on Lady Chatsworth ("Peeper")


Well, Lady Chatsworth's boyfriend/spousal unit has finally warmed up to
us. He is a Canadian Goose who decided to check her out...then stayed.
One of my daughters actually picked him UP the other day and he didn't
seem to mind one bit. This is a wild goose....not domestic in any way.
Lady Chatsworth minds more than he did! She is now so independant that
she does NOT want to be handled. She'll follow you, but don't mess with
her. So...I'm hoping when spring FINALLY gets here we'll have some
little "mutant" babies running around! LOL.
