Do you have a funny Geese story? Chances are you, or someone you know, has a story involving a goose and I’m willing to bet it involves being chased.
While geese may not be the first animal you think of when adding livestock to your homestead, they really should be.
Geese are an amazing multi-functional livestock animal and deserve a place on your farm.
Raising Geese: Modern Guide to Keeping Geese
I have a fond, yet funny memory of geese that actually made it to the local paper.
We have a shopping area that host a pond in the middle. Wild ducks and geese call this pond home while tourist enjoy feeding them while observing their funny antics.
While working at one of the stores, my mother befriended a lone goose who could never find a mate. The locals named the goose Lucy.
My mother talked with Lucy daily like an old friend, chatting and honking away.
After a while Lucy started to withdraw from society and their daily chats, suffering from what my mother would only refer to as a broken heart.
Being the matchmaker (and busy body) that my mother is, she wrote an article about lonely Lucy and needed help finding her a soul mate.
Low and behold, we found a Ricky to go with Lucy and the two lived happily ever after!
This touching love story between a lonely goose and finding her a mate, opened my eyes to the personalities of geese and changed my perspective.
