Geese on patrol

Just moved my geese into a different part of the orchard / garden. They are great weed machines.

Very beautiful!
It looks like the geese are on a discovery tour.

What, may I ask, do you do with the eggs?

My mother used to paint them, Ukrainian style.
I will try to snap a pic of them next time I visit her, then share it with all of you.

Great photos, Eric!

Julie,

This was the first spring they laid eggs. There were only eight. I left the eggs in the orchard hoping the geese would set. No luck, so I gave the eggs to my two dogs. Next year there should be more. Maybe as many as 35 eggs per goose.

One of the geese when it was a gossling.

I like those geese but I love those daisys.

Don't the geese eat the flowers as well as the weeds? I've always lived in the city, so I have no knowledge of such things. I loved the gosling in the plants. A very pretty shot!

Geese are almost like goats. I've seen them eat leaves, bark, roots, fruits and berries. So short portable fences around valued plants are in order.
