We bought a goose for Christmas from a farmer on one of the islands. A LIVE one, that is. The farmer told us we wouldn’t need to clip her wings because she never flew. We named her “Christmas Dinner” and she lived outside with our chickens. Unfortunately, she refused to eat the weight-enhancing pellets i bought her and refused to eat anything at all. A few days later she flew away.
There are rumors of a wild goose around our town and I have been walking around in search of her. But no luck. Not for us anyway.
