Goslings born at Morvern Valley in April 2012
Our pair of Brown Chinese Geese ‘Ping’ and ‘Pong’ hatched 7 goslings, – a strange time of year but the seasons have been unusual indeed this year!
The proud parents and babies are all doing well and are very cute.
The Brown Chinese have a large ball shaped dome on their upper beak. They are one of the best natured breeds of geese. Brown Chinese love to talk as they move around. When Ping and Pong first came to live at Morvern we thought there were people quietly talking just outside the window. Whenever they see you will have a gaggle at you.
Brown Chinese were on the endangered list in Australia. They are now becoming stable, with quite a few breeders taking them on board. Our babies are important to the preservation of this breed.
