Hey gang. So lots of goose happenings here. First, we have 4 eggs that seem to be progressing nicely in the incubator. And my girl goose is still on her eggs but I'm thinking that she's going to be disappointed. Geese can take up to 36 days to hatch so I'm still holding out a little hope for her. I'll keep you posted.
I do have 2 sets of eggs incubating right now though that I'm stoked about. I was looking for Sebastapol eggs and found some! More than I planned even! I found a very nice woman in Lebanon, MO who raises them AND put me on her waiting list. Most folks that I contacted have very long waiting lists. BUT - my name came up and, serendipitously, my darling sister was in the neighborhood. So 6 there. I tucked those under some grumpy broody hens who, usually, I would try to convince to stop sitting on eggs. Now, though, I'm giving them pep talks (or peep talks...hee..hee...) about staying put. Doesn't she look good and grumpy? Won't even make eye contact.
