  1. Yay! I got my felting kit today! Can’t wait to get started.

    About your lovely goose…and I am not a goose expert, but I looked it up in Carol Ekarius’ book (Storey’s Illustrated Guide to Poultry Breeds) and I think it is actually a Chinese Goose. The African looks almost the same but is supposed to have a dewlap under its chin. The book also says the two are very similar but the Chinese is considerably smaller, which fits with what you said. Anyway, I’m not saying for sure that’s what it is, but it seems to fit the description of the book, and your pictures, so I thought I should tell you. It says they are among the most prolific layers of geese, laying 50-60 eggs a year!

  2. Thank you Claire! I believe you are right that he fits the description of the Chinese Goose much better! I LOVE that book, but haven’t bought it yet. The pictures are beautiful.
