We've had two female geese sitting on a clutch of eggs for about a month now. Three days ago, this little yellow guy hatched. Two days ago, the gray and yellow one made his appearance along with another one that we think got stepped on and sadly didn't survive.
It's really difficult to get pictures of the little fuzz balls because all of the geese, both males and females, seem to have a vested interest in shielding them from big humans with cameras.
These little guys are traveling all over the large fenced in poultry yard (zipping along like wind-up toys . . . how can their little legs handle all the mileage?) grazing and drinking water right with the big geese. When they move from spot to spot, the adults seem to put them in the center, forming a protective circle around them.
We still have this mama goose sitting on the remaining eggs. When I took this picture, I thought I could hear muffled peeps coming from beneath her. Wishful thinking, or will we get more babies yet?
