I shall name them: Trick and Treat

BB the goose has been diligently sitting in her eggs. She laid ten and she guards them with hisses and bites. I was skeptical that Sue (the male goose) had done what he needed to do, but I was proven wrong this morning.

From the fenceline, I saw a few shell bits in BB's nest and sure enough, upon closer inspection, I found two little baby Brown Chinese geese in there. We'll wait and see if the other eggs hatch. Crossing fingers they all grow up happy and healthy.

I moved another doghouse into the goose pen in case another one wants to be a mama. So far, the other two ladies aren't laying.

BB attempted to be a mama when she had a duck lover, but that never worked out.
