At Last A Gosling

Our lovely goose has finally got some little baby goslings, yesterday she was very hissy when I change her water and I was so surprised to see one fluffy little baby and another this morning. She had been so determined to hatch a baby and has been sitting since the 7th April. We sadly saw 3 dead babies weeks ago and realised that nearly all the19 eggs she was incubating were being eaten by something. We have meshed the door so she can still see outside while being protected from outside predators. So far these babies are doing well.
