Re: Baby chics update...


Goose has a man in her life now so no time for humans anymore.  She does come up to the house to eat and honks at us every now and then, but he is really possessive of her and always puts himself between his woman and the humanoids.  He doesn't hiss, but you can tell he does NOT want you near her.  He stretches his neck wayyyyy out there and starts honking at you.  He always lets her eat first and is very protective.  I think she had eggs this year but the darn raccoons got them I'm sure.  Next year I'll have to find her nest and move her so that doesn't happen - but it's hard to do when she stays out by the ponds.  Too many places to hide them.
