A Gaggle of Goslings at My Farm

We have a gaggle of fluffy goslings here at my Bedford, New York farm.

As many of you know, I’ve had Pomeranian guard geese for many years. They keep watch over my flock of chickens. They’re also my pets. I love visiting them in their enclosure, and I appreciate their beauty and their company. Last weekend, five more geese joined my family - these are Sebastopol geese. I got them from breeder Brian Tallman in Pine Plains, New York. The Sebastopol goose originated in southeastern Europe, and is named after the Russian city. These goslings will weigh 12 to 14 pounds each when mature, and have long, soft-quilled frizzled feathers, but for now, they’re nothing less than absolutely adorable.

Enjoy these photos and have a great weekend.
