Goosey Goosey Gander…

11 08 2010

A couple of weeks ago my geese moved house.

They weren’t aware that this was gonig to happen and at the time seemed rather put out by it all, but then I can’t blame them.

They were rudely awakened and put into a crate before they could bully their way out of the door of their house and then got to spend a fun filled car journey listening to the top 40 hit list interspersed with my ranting at the various at dodgy drivers I came across.

On getting back to my house I remembered that I hadn’t bothered to make them a new home in advance so then in the sweltering heat had to knock something together out of some breeze blocks and corrugated metal… mmmm attractive.

Mishaps aside though they have now been here a week and other than missing their normal quacky companions they have settled in well.

They are enjoying having the free reign of the garden and after a couple of days managed to find the hen house, this has been an immense source of glee for the geese as they now have something to herd around in front of them in their oh so bossy fashion.

They have also realised that the baby bath full of water is for them rather then some mysterious phantom baby that is tardy regarding bath time. They love it unfortunately it isn’t big enough for both of them at once but they have become very good at sharing and taking turns.

As soon as WordPress decides it likes me again I will make a point of uploading some of the many piccies and videos of our new residents.

Ducks are awesome, but not really awesome enough.

Geese just have this sort of badass f*ck you attitude that sets them apart in the world of water fowl
