Well silly question time again from me.. but..

How best to hold my Goslings folks??
They went and got HUGE on me in a week and holding them like a chick DOESNT work. They wriggle and kick their legs and it scares me they may get hurt, or I am doing something wrong.

I have to pick them up to pop them in a basket to go outside and back in after walkies..and also to their bath every day.

Please help me.. I HATE how it upsets them.

Hugz for the help in advance.. yup.. you heard me HUGS.. becasue your advice means that much to me.

Ours seem to cope best if their feet are tucked up and supported. They hate to have their feet hanging down! They still try to wriggle and leap to the floor but at least ther're not kicking and flapping so much :wink: . I might have it all wrong though...these are our first 8) (and don't they grow FAST! :D )

Gawd... DONT tell me you have 30 more...

Ya bloomin well know I would keep every one of them AND NEVER knock any on the head for a xmas dinner...

Id be known as "cRAZY gOOSE lADY"

Gawd...... this is toooooooooooooooooooooo hard..lol

Nah we have to box them in to go for a bath and in and out for a walk. My youngest Cocker Spaniel who is 16 months has decided to try and EAT them.

NOTHING we do is stopping her and believe you me.. I mean NOTHING so...... They are under Mummy or Daddy Guard ALL THE TIME.

Mind you, it was nice having them sit on a rug under the computer desk at my feet for an hour .. They had a BIG bowl of grass and then a nap.

Too cute.
