      Thanks. They don’t bother to move when it’s cold and they’re all cozy tucked in.

    They’re beautiful. No matter how noisy and messy, but I still love the geese and I miss them when they’re gone.

      That’s the fun thing with domestic geese. These stay here year round. 🙂

    Nice images of the geese, and they seem very tranquil now.

      March to June is when they want to set on eggs. They are dangerous then. Now they just want me to feed them. 🙂

      I missed the Chinese geese, but I really do like all four breeds I have.

    Great photos and the geese look as if they would certainly keep you entertained!

      They really are funny to watch.

    Indeed, however there is nothing more awe-inspiring than seeing flocks of 1000s going to roost, the noise is unbelievable

      They are very noisy! My domestic geese are mostly stuck on the ground, but I do still adore them.

    They are a handful at times, but have become a part of our farm family over the years. 🙂

    • Teresa December 19, 2013 at 7:30 am #

      I couldn’t imagine how quiet the farm would seem without their big voices.

    HI Thersa These are wonderful close up shots of these geese.

    • Teresa December 19, 2013 at 12:56 pm #

      Thanks. They are pretty happy not to move when it’s cold outside.

  13. Rebecca December 20, 2013 at 7:27 pm #
