No Goslings

17 Aug

It had been long enough that I finally had to clear out the goose’s nest.  She didn’t need to keep sitting on eggs that were never going to hatch.

She’s been enjoying the pool.

The old gander seems happy to have her for company again.  I hope he makes it through the winter and she can hatch herself some company next year.

In other bird news, I can’t really tell the two peacocks apart anymore because they’ve lost their feathers.

I have been gathering some of them up because all of their feathers, not just the famous eye tail feathers are pretty.

Here’s a bonus of Nugget, just because I’m happy he’s a nice rooster.

And I might have more bird news soon…

In the Bird Pen

29 Jul

With the three naughty roosters, by birds were horribly negelcted.  I’ve been working on cleaning in there too, but I still have the goose sitting, and I don’t know when she’ll be off the nest.  I just hope she hatches a couple.  I don’t want to disturb her, so it’s pretty minimal cleaning right now.

I mentioned we are still having great weather.  That’s helped the gander feel better.  He was not doing well at all in the heat.

It seems a bit early, but the peacocks are molting.  Every time I go in there, I pick up tail feathers.

Soon, I won’t be able to tell who is dad and who is baby.

I’m also happy to say that Nugget is still a nice rooster.

That makes me happy!
