Mr. and Mrs. Shetland Goose had a very good hatch yesterday. Eight eggs hatched, one little gosling didn't make it.
All the time Mama Goose was setting on her eggs, she didn't want Father Goose anywhere near her. She was downright cranky whenever he showed his face.
But now that the goslings are here, she's decided he's not a bad guy to have around. Papa is being very (VERY) protective of his brood.
"Now will you bothersome people please go away and leave us alone?"
I hope to get some more pictures in the next few days when the babies are out and about more. It was only 28 degrees this morning so you can't blame them for staying under their goose down comforter.
Just when it couldn't have been more surreal...
