A Gosling’s entry into the world !
May 5, 2014
This little Gosling was abandoned in the nest just before she was due to hatch out. I put the egg under a broody hen and could hear the chick cheeping. Nothing happened until late afternoon on the second day. The chick managed to pip the egg. However, after observing for a few more hours, there was no noise or movement, so,I decided to intervene and help her into the world. Her siblings had hatched three days earlier, so she had been struggling for a long time to get out and was just too exhausted.
