The Geese Have Spoken

On the advice of my friend Connie the Goose Woman I procured some carrots for Poly and Fredrik.

I washed and scrubbed them with a vegetable brush.  I chopped them into bite sized pieces, and put them out for breakfast with the lettuces and broccoli.

They ate everything but the carrots.

Next morning I thought, well, maybe they are to large or too hard, so I grated them and mixed them into the other greens.

They picked out every single bit of orange food and spat it onto the ground!


Geese: 1

Carrots: 0

Point made!

and cramming it all in her bill!

Breakfast is served

This winter has left us without much for goose grazing.  This requires me to supplement Polly and Fredrik’s food rations.  This morning’s offering was a head of green, leafy lettuce.  Bob said that when he entered the goose-yard Fredrik ran up and snatched the plastic bag holding the washed and prepped lettuce.  He had to chase him round the yard to get it back!

I guess when you are hungry your manners go out the window.
