Our broody hen, sitting on 6 goose eggs for the last month (and yes, she was "spread thin") has hatched her first gosling! Homer went to feed her and turn the eggs, and when he picked her up another head appeared..poking out of one of the eggs! Here is a photo of the still soaking wet gosling, in a few hours will be dry, fluffy and wobbling around!
I am the lucky woman who gets to be the farmer's wife to Homer Walden, the hardworking, creative and innovative force behind Sunnyside Farm. The farm is a pasture based intensive grazed farm in Dover, PA. We grow heirloom, open pollinated vegetables, chicken, eggs from heritage breed chickens, beef, heirloom breed turkeys for Thanksgiving and pork with no commercial feed, honey, eggs, Buff ducks. And the occasional flower or 2.
