We've eight new Geese

Geese 1

These were intensive breeding geese, past their useful lives and sold cheaply (We paid 24 euros for eight) or discarded because they're not worth selling for their meat.

Their feathers are growing back in and they look much cleaner than they were when they came. Two of them have Angel Wing probably caused by over-rich feeding and not enough exercise, but they're all healthy and we'll save the best ones for breeding in the Spring.

Tonight they went into their shed with just a little coaxing from me and Max.

They do - very!

They're becoming easier to manage and put away now. Once you have a routine and they know the place better they almost look after themselves.
