Strange things sometimes happen at Holebrook and this is no exception!! One of our Muscovey ducks decided to nest with the Geese, both females sat beside each other during incubation quite happily, but some how eggs got mixed up and the Muscovey hatched this little fella. Both Goose and Duck are continuing to incubate the remaining eggs, so Mr Goose has taken the role of both parents except when baby gets cold, in which case he scurries off to the goose house and nestles between the two sitting females. He is so grown up and mimics everything his father does, the wonder of nature never ceases to amaze us!!
