鹅水上乐园

去年12月,我们失去了一只Embden鹅‘Biscuit’肿瘤。我们首先注意到她右翼下有一个很大的肿块。我们请兽医打电话给她看病,诊断不佳,可能是某种形式的癌症。由于肿块并没有给她带来太多麻烦(至少她在表面上的举止很正常),因此决定让她享受夏天的剩余时间。一旦她出现不适迹象,我们将请兽医将她放倒。她设法度过了整个夏天和整个秋天,直到12月中旬她才开始四处走动。

我们再次联系兽医,她同意时间到了。她第二天打电话。我们设法抓住了‘Biscuit’ and prepared ourselves for the worst. Geese apparently have to be injected through the breast muscle and this can take up to 15 minutes to take effect. Rhona our vet injected her and we just talked to 饼干 and held her head and neck. Told her how much we loved her. Very upsetting the whole thing. For weeks after, both ‘Amber’ and ‘Skye’一直在寻找她。他们的肢体语言告诉我们他们仍然想念她。这三个人在一起已经超过6年了,彼此之间非常亲密。

毛巾在哪里?

更积极的一点是,在今年7月(2012年),我们将两只灰鹅添加到剩余的两个白色巢穴中。我猜他们大约有12周大。我们已经决定,最好的选择是在晚上将它们介绍给成年人,因此将它们与年龄较大的女孩一起放到鹅舍里只是一个试验。两个炸弹都非常不安,发出嘶嘶声,跳来跳去。无论如何,我们设法让他们进入并迅速关上了门。当我们退缩时,我们仍然可以听到嘶嘶声和敲打声。我们担心早晨会变得更糟。

鹅在池塘里洗澡

全家共享水

早晨破晓,我们打开门,年轻人和两个成年人一样平静得多。我们抱起了两个小伙子,然后把他们塞进了围起来的迷你植物园中。两个大人在打电话,把球拍弄得一团糟。可怜的老‘Amber’似乎真的让整个事情感到沮丧。无论如何‘Skye’ was making the right noises as she advanced towards the fence where the two goslings were pressed right up to. Fine we thought, we lifted the two youngsters out and placed them 上 the grass right next to 斯凯. To cut a long story short, ‘Skye’采纳他们并慢慢地‘Amber’来了,还扮演了母亲的角色。

两个星期后,一切顺利。当流浪母鸡离得太近时,两个成年人都对这两只小鹅很宠爱,并捍卫自己的领土。此页面开头的视频显示了我们专门建造的鹅塘。花了大地(唐’要求),鹅喜欢它,并花费大量时间进行划船,航行和潜水,完全淹没在水中,这是我值得的投资’d say!

Many months later (February 2013) the goslings are now much larger. They do so enjoy the water, the young 灰鹅 Valerie and Gordon, particularly throw themselves all over the place. The older embden girls, 琥珀色 and 斯凯 are a little more restrained. A few days ago the pond was frozen and you could tell they were missing the frolics.
