Nest building

Today Barley built a nest. The geese have been extremely territorial recently and grumpy. Bonnie and Bumble have been hissing at every one and anything, including wellies, buckets, egg baskets, grain bags.

But quiet Barley has been making a little spot to maybe lay her first egg? The geese are a year old now and spring is in the air.

After a few hours of sitting, wiggling and holding her tail up…nothing appeared. Another day maybe. But I had better keep a lookout as sometimes they hide their eggs. No gander, so no goslings to hatch. But it means the girls have grown up and a whole new chapter is ahead of them when we move to the farm house.
