Introducing our new guard animals!
African and Embden Goslings- soon to be honking, flapping, hissing guard-geese for our chickens.
As adults these birds will be very successful at protecting the chickens and turkeys from aerial predation from hawks.

|Happy little girl.|
|Thank you adorable, fragile baby birds for bringing our children this much joy, for teaching them gentleness and to care for others, and thank you in advance for protecting our chickens and turkeys, and for not biting our kids' fingers off.|
