• IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE FAIRFIELD HOUSE RESIDENT GEESE

    May 31, 2017
  • Soon the gander and goose will have a family of goslings to raise. In order to avoid diseases such as a condition called “Angel’s Wing” in the goslings, they should not be fed. The geese parents will teach the goslings how to forage for their main diet of grass and show them all the other things that they will need to know to prepare them for migration in the fall…including how to fly.

    Also important, please observe the family of geese from a safe distance. The gander and goose will be fiercely protective of their goslings. Children need to be accompanied by an adult for observation activity.
