Re: Lady Chatsworth News

YES...he is a Canadian Goose. She looks like a South African Embden (not
sure, she just showed up at our place as a downy baby). I never heard of
that!! Really??? I was so hoping for some little babies to show up. And
geese mate for life...if this is the guy she chose....how sad.

I've had to miss a lot of messages. Is he a wild/Canada type and she's 
domestic? If so, from what I remember, that cross is sterile. Eggs are laid, 
but never hatch. There used to be lots of non-productive nests near the pond 
on which I grew up. Very sad for the couple, and hard on the Mom who kept 
setting, trying to bring off a hatch.

Hope the next attempt is more successful.
