The initial thought was to keep them until the holidays and then eat them for Christmas, but I got used to having them around, and they're a pretty good farm doorbell -- whenever someone they don't know comes down the driveway they're on it -- and they're pretty much self-feeding. They eat a bit of the feed from the animal feeders, and some of the produce we feed to the hogs, and lots of grass. So it's been pretty painless to have them around. This time of year the two grey geese are both convinced that they should sit on eggs. They're both females, so none of the eggs are fertile, but that doesn't stop them from trying to hatch them.
