Come Out!

Come out! Wherever you are??
It's hide and seek time on the farm!
You can hide under your momma!
(there are 3 little fuzzy legged chicks under there!)
Shhhh! No one will find you here....
I think the hens are it!
Or maybe the geese are!
I'm never sure about these barnyard games!

Very cute and I too am surprised the cats don't chase!

I love the picture of the baby chick. I just love Toulouse geese--I only have one.

Millie, are Toulouse geese the same as Buff geese? These are supposed to be Buff. I was worried when I got them that they would be aggressive towards the kids because the man I got them from told me they were African Grays. As they got older I did some searching and found out they were Buffs. Buffs are known for their docile nature. I was so glad! I would love to have a few more. They are not quite a year old and are difficult to sex so I don't know if I have ganders or geese. I haven't found any eggs yet. I had 5 of them and coyotes got 2 when they decided to spend a few nights at the pond. They came back to the barn themselves after that and haven't gone back to the pond since thankfully.

I have about 16 of those geese -- which are Toulouse, as far as McMurray Hatchery is concerned, and I do trust them, for what it's worth.

The only time they get aggressive is at breeding time -- best to keep your distance or carry a stick to put between you and them, if you know what I mean. Love 'em though. :)

Thanks Nancy! Have you figured out how to tell male and female? I know it's not a sure thing but one is a bit larger, more vocal and seems protective of the smaller two. I'm hoping this is a male. I would love to have more of then. These three will line up side by side in the barn, stretch their wings out with tips touch and flap as hard as they can. Then they run towards the guineas to scare them. It makes me laugh each time I see them do it. I would run too if they came at me like that!

LOL, that was fun. I was never sure about those games either :)
