Sebastopol Geese: a goose in a dress!

Meet Donald and Ivana (named years before the presidential issues of today) These are my Sebastopol geese and wow, what a pair they are! Sweet tempered, affectionate and friendly, they are the most awesome geese I have ever known!

I first heard about Sebastopol Geese about 5 years ago. I saw a picture of them and thought they looked just like they were wearing party dresses! I just had to have some but the price was daunting. Fortunately I was gifted a pair about a year later. I fell madly in love with their personalities as they are some of the sweetest waterfowl I have had. They are the only breed of goose that I have raised though, so maybe all geese are this personable?

Sebastopol geese are descended from the European Graylag and were first exhibited in England in 1860. They are named after the Russian city of Sebastopol and were first recognized by the American Poultry Association in 1938.

Friday Funnies!

It's the end of January! We've made it through the storm of the year (so far....but we've just started 2016!) and hopefully everyone's flocks are recovered from the dumping of snow on their heads! I don't know about you but I need a break, so let's start the weekend out laughing...


funny chicken jokes
 


Q: What do you call it when a chicken stumbles across the street?
A: A road trip! 

Q: What do chickens like best about school?
A: Field trips!

Definition of relay: What chickens do when the farmer takes their eggs away!
