We have many animals here and I've mentioned many of them in passing but this one deserves a special mention.
I'd like you to meet Gammy. Gammy is a gosling and he has a gammy leg. We saved him from his parents when they had kicked him out of the nest. He was cold, not moving much and looked nearly dead.
We were very happy when we gave him warmth and love and watched him quickly revive. He became Belle's special pet. She has always been the poultry child who spend hours on end with the chooks and I'm sure she was secretly pleased that the parents had rejected one of their goslings.
After a week however, he was able to push himself to a stand and walk a few steps at a time. He was very cute. If I left his sight to cook in the kitchen he would start chirping like crazy and trot into the kitchen to sit by my feet. Needless to say, we were all a bit in love with Gammy by this stage.
He has made friends with our female duck and she wanders over if he sounds distressed and stays with him until we get there to roll him over.
