It’s like keeping a dinosaur in the chicken yard.

    Sorry to hear about your other geese.Maybe you can find another goose as a companion for her and keep them both in the chicken yard. My chickens don’t seem to mind the ducks and geese being in with them during the summer, but I have separate winter quarters for them since I keep everyone confined during winter.

    LOL! DS7 exclaimed as we were driving home on Saturday, “Wow! Mom! Look at that giant chicken!!” It was a turkey. I almost hated to tell him. I didn’t tell him they were for sale, though! Maybe next year.

    What a great shot! She/it makes me think of those statues you see mounted atop a pillar.

    She does need company though.

    She’s very pretty and probably thinks she is a chicken! I do hope she is friendly. :happyflower:

    You need a goose girl!(or boy) Someone to take the village geese to the pond/pasture in the morning, then bring them home in the evening. I always wondered how they did that! …and how the village decided who got to be the lucky goose girl.

    I personally love my three geese, who are the ‘big chickens’ of the barnyard around here. I sorta think of myself as a goose girl upon occasion, since they follow me and try to fly after me at times, if I run. And eat my hair…ah, the joys of friendly geese!

    I love to see all the different animals, mostly bird types. I kind of live my desire for geese through yours. I have chickens, ducks and turkeys for now.
    Your girl is very photogenic, good shot :duck:

    ” dinosaur in the chicken yard” Well actually, not far from the truth…dino experts claim birds are descended from dinosaurs, just hope your goose is not is a velociraptor in disguise!

    We had a turkey that thought he was a chicken. He came to live with the girls when his buddy was killed by something – we think a raccoon. He hung out with the girls, greeted the kids as they walked home from the bus stop, ran up for veggie scraps. He got so big we thought his legs might give out. When we finally took him in to the processor, he weighed 43 pounds (dressed).

    This reminds me of the year my youngest was 2 and saw the Thanksgiving turkey coming out of the oven – “That’s a mighty big chicken!” he said, incredulously.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
