Memorial Day goslings and chicks

We have more goslings hatching today at Thiry Farm!

These little guys were incubated under a broody Buff Orpington hen named Scrambles.

Scrambles is in a dog crate in the coop to prevent the other hens from bothering her while she’s broody.

She did a great job, so when we removed the eggs to the incubator for hatching, we replaced them with a couple of chicks from the feed store to give Scrambles something to mother.

She’s doing a great job!

If you are interested in purchasing Pilgrim goslings, email us at or catch up with us next Saturday (June 3) at the livestock auction in Hillsdale, Michigan.

    This is a whole new character for me, and I have be following right along. I happy for your success with your fine feathered friends. No doubt, you are on a first name basis at the feed store. That is a good place to be.

    I don’t know if a gratuitous animal video will get this thread started, but, let’s try.

    Let’s try another animal video.

    I think that this is the first in a series.
