Meet Lucy Goose - yes, not very original we know. She is a Sebastapol, and as darker Sebastapol chicks are usually female we guess that she's a girl. She won't get her white fluffy feathers until mid to late June. Sebastapol geese have unusual feathers - they do not contain a rigid quill, so they fall in curls and ringlets.

She was hatched by hand in early May and is just a few weeks old. She has grown from a single handful to a strapping young gosling. Very insistent on following us around throughout the day, flapping her tiny winglets, preening in the sun and nipping the dog's nose.

Finding her way around the bedroom... the arrow points to breakfast.
