A Gaggle of Geese

Here are our new additions to Cottage Farm, eight lovely geese. Seven of them were born this year (geese only lay and hatch eggs in early Spring) and the other is a year old. They have settled in wonderfully and even seem to be getting on well with the chickens (Roderick the cockerel has met his match!) 

Geese are herbivorous, grazing birds so they will do a great job of keeping the grass down at the farm. So not only are they lovely, they're also useful!
