this just in!

Today I came home to a new edition to CAF! Cyrus and Saro did it, a gosling was born today, hatched on the solstice. I don't know what the Farmer's Almanac has to say about goose babes on the winter solstice, but I am chalking it up as a good sign! I hope he/she is just the first of many little ones out of that clutch of eggs. Both geese have been working hard to guard and care for that nest in the coop, may it bring all sorts of chirps into this new light!

Congratulations! It's been a long time coming, and on the Solstice too, that's got to be some kind of good sign. :)

This is wonderful news. If I'm remembering correctly they've been trying for long time to hatch an egg. Plus, a new life on solstice has to be a good omen. Congrats!!!!
