Silly Geese!

These are our spoiled geese! The white one in the front is Nester and the gray one is Chester. We hatched Nester in February 2009 and he has been so much fun to raise! We acquired his buddy Chester last summer from a couple who thought he was a troublemaker with the rest of their flock. We have had no problems with him since he has come to live with us. He is a very laid back bird. Nester is our handful! Some of his favorite things are painted toe nails and flip flops. He has trained us to not step too close to the pen or he will chase us back in a hurry! He has also been known to break up cat fights, scare off a lab and chase the goats until they are shaking scared! What impresses me most about these guys though, is their "watchdog" status. They stand guard by the edge of the pen through rain, snow, heat, whatever and will alert to any danger that is around them. They are beautiful fun birds and I am so glad to have them as part of our family!
