Hi, today i am going to talk about geese .There are many different kinds of geese Grey lag goose , Cape Barren goose and many more different goose but today i am going to talk about Canadian goose , these large birds mainly live in Canada . The female bird lays to about nine eggs at a time , after she has lays the eggs they sit on the eggs for a month until the thertieth day when the chicks  hatch . A geeses chick is called a gosling , when the goslings hatch they are able to do things like an adult goose except to fly . When the chicks hatch the male shed off their feathers (like a snake)until the chicks learn how to fly . When the chicks are ready for flight after 9 weeks the male birds get their feathers back . After the birds take off from flight they migrate to the southern regions when its warmer for the breeding season , where the process continous for a long time . did you know that canadian goose can live upto 25 years! . Thanks for reading my blog .
