We have a new arrival at The Chookery – a brand new little grey gosling. I’ve been expecting the egg under Gertie to hatch for a few days now, and when I went down to let them out of their pens this morning the Sergeant was more hessy than usual and Gertie was not as down in on her nest as she has been, so I suspected the good news. I got the Sergeant out of the way and lifted Gertie to see a tiny little yellow-and-grey gosling nestled in amongst the down in her nest. So, pretty punctual, given that Gozzie was hatched on 11th May last year and Gusto has arrived one year and three days later.
Why Gusto? Simple really: gos(ling) two, gos-two, Gusto!
Toggies to be posted when I get the opportunity.
