    we moved house in November and I haven't had a chance to put the bird house/camera up.

    We do however had a couple of new additions and I forthwith I present you George and Jenny...

    Purebred Brecon Buffs. Jenny is currently sitting nine eggs which should hatch in about two weeks. I a, awaiting an opportunity to get the camera into their house without George trying to kill me!

    Oh lovely!

    Have to be honest though, I'm quite wary of geese, I shall always remember as a child being chased around the garden by my Mum's gander on a regular basis! I swear the bloomin thing used to lie in wait for me! Lol.

    Hello there! Was wondering what you had been up to.....not seen you around!
    How exciting.
    Think I am in the bloomin' heck, they are massive, I will just stay away over here camp though :D

    Will await new arrivals with high expectations of cuteness overload.
    Good luck!

    Hi those geese are beautiful :) We didn't have anything as gorgeous as those, but we did have African Runner Ducks and a Cockerel called Commander that used to chase my youngest son Thomas up the garden, knock him to the ground and stand on him and ocassionally peck him :(, he was only a small lad, he would coming running in covered in mud crying :rolleyes:

    Five fluffy yellow chicks! Possibly more tomorrow (there were nine eggs), but I'm not expecting all to hatch.

    Photos when I can try and get close enough!!

    Five goslings - great news!! Looking forward to pics. Goslings are so cute and have such great personalities. The parents will be pretty protective of their bubs though.
