My Gosling Is Growing Up

My little gosling is growing up...

Not long ago, I shared images of my cute, fluffy, and very curious gosling, which was bred, incubated and hatched right here at my Bedford, New York farm. For the first two weeks, it was housed with other chicks in my stable feed room where we set up safe, warm brooders. But, geese grow very quickly. In fact, they catch up to full body size within the first few months of life. As their feathers come in, they also nearly double in weight and stature every week. It was time to move our gosling to another coop, with some bigger, older peeps, and more room to roam.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
