The Goslings

The family of Canada Geese is doing just fine here on the little farm pond and around the grassy pastures here.  The seven goslings are two weeks old and are growing a lot.  They are beginning to look a lot more like geese then they had earlier when they were little yellow fluff-balls.  The Canada Geese eat grass and certain tender plants as well as some of the grains.  They are content here eating the grass.  The goslings have been out on the pond several times a day with the parents.  At least one adult is always with the goslings.  The Canada Geese are devoted parents.  The goslings won’t fly until they are between three and four months of age.  I have enjoyed seeing the babies here.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

    so glad all 7 are still doing well! 🙂

  3. They are just adorable! I love the way they line up. Maybe it’s easier for mom to count them that way.

  4. How cute, they are adorable. I hope they all make it. I like to see them lined up with their Momma.

    • Hi Eileen, I just now saw the little family waddling across the lawn beside the house on their way back to the pond. All are well and growing! Have a wonderful weekend!

  5. They are sure cute and I love to see how well the parents care for them! There is a pond several miles from here that is home to a number of Goose families too, and most of the little ones are also about that size. There’s one family however that must have hatched out early and they are about twice the size of the others.
