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.

I almost hated to tell him. I didn’t tell him they were for sale, though! Maybe next year. On August 1, 2011 at 8:53 am Log in to Reply Glenda says: What a great shot! She/it makes me think of those statues you see mounted atop a pillar. She does need company though.

I do hope she is friendly. :happyflower: On August 1, 2011 at 9:27 am Log in to Reply BuckeyeGirl says: 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 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 have chickens, ducks and turkeys for now. Your girl is very photogenic, good shot :duck: On August 1, 2011 at 10:16 am Log in to Reply bonita says: ” 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!

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).
