Dear, dear Tilly. Her hearts desire is to be a mommy and so she sits and sits on her stone cold eggs that never will hatch.
Once, she sat on colored plastic balls that were lying in the yard. She gathered them in her nest and spread her wings and warmth upon the red, green and blue spheres.
It was so sad and pathetic.
Another time, I gave her 2 ducklings from an overburdened hen. All went well until the ducklings realized they were NOT GEESE and swam away to be with the other ducks, deserting Mathilda in the process.
I have decided to Purchase 2 goslings for Mathilda, and place them beneath her body so that she will think she hatched them.
I've been shopping for little baby geese online and have a few potential adoptees in mind.
I can hardly wait to see her face when she realizes she is a mommy at last!
