I thought I would share some pictures of my last seasons sebastopols, all in all pretty happy with the first go, need to diversify my bloodline now.

one of mine has a devil of a time getting out of the tubs I use for their splashing aorund in. Earlier this week, I saw her in there, she was soaked thru, she did not look well, she couldnt walk, I bought her in, and towel dried her and cuddled her and she looked like death itself. I felt SOOOOO bad for her. Ive since put a couple of pavers at the bottom of the bathtubs for a leg up. She was right as rain later in the day but she seems to have developed a healthy respect of water.

I find mines' feathers often break, is that typical of sebs? Do their feathers get as much oil and water proofing as the regular geese?

Be good if they had a bit more strength , hard for them I guess with all that fluff and bother going on arond them, but hey, arent they just gorgeous! Nice natured also.

Yours are very cute, wish I was more well off at the moment...truly do. Time for MORE LOTTO!! Maybe i could sell a kidney, I dont drink, only take prescription medication, they should work pretty good! :rofl:

They are all Gorgeous Frawley. Seeing them makes me miss a gander I once had even more. I still have one of his feathers that I took just before he was rehomed to a farm. They are my favorite breed of goose- and will be on the top of my list for animals to acquire when I am lucky enough to have a few acres.

I love the little patch of dark feathers on the back of ones neck. I wonder if predators would mistake something like that for an eye. It would be some handy protection if they did. Hope it would never be needed though of course....
