I was soo pleased I had my camera with me so I could snap you all some photos of Geraldine goose.
You see she is sitting on eggs and only gets off her nest once a day to have a swim.
Gus on left (white) Geraldine on left (grey) breed is Pilgrim geese.
Gus is 1 year old and Geraldine is about 3 years old. They can live until 20... And they are pets, so will not be ever going in the pot. Their offspring will be rehomed to pet homes.
Geraldine gets to have a big stretch
Geraldine and Gus have six eggs in the nest
Geraldine is an excellent mother to be
She lovingly turns her eggs every day with her beak
and her feet.
I didn't quite get the date she began sitting but if they are fertile (we did see some romancing happening in the swimming pool) they should hatch in 30 days from when she first started to sit after laying her sixth egg.

Dear old Molly goat (about 13 or 14 years old ) thought my parsnip tops were mighty fine.
The boys are doing well, all very relaxed and very much at home here. I thought I'd profile one at a time.
Today let me introduce you to Charles. Charles is very handsome and rather special too as he was from the very first litter of kittens we ever bred, he is litter mate to our cats Laura and Caro. - They will turn 10 in January 2013.
A true man cat - One can only imagine the condition of another cat after Charles had dealt to it.
We are pretty sure these 4 boys would cause much concern if they were to board at a communal type cattery.
