Chinese Geese

"Paté," my old Brown China gander

I got "Paté" in 1978, and he was at least 3 years old at that time. We were good buddies and he'd "talk" to me whenever I called "goose, goose."
He passed away on 17 July 1998.
His granddaughter Bandit lived to be 26.

Brown China goslings

At two days, there was about an inch difference between the Toulouse and the Brown Chinas -- here they are at two weeks!
