" Kids can reach under fluffy hens to gather eggs and hold a chick. They pump water for goats and bottle-feed lambs, all in a space of about an hour. " The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer, August 17, 2008
 

A wide assortment of poultry call Weatherbury Farm home. Without a doubt (as shown at top left), mealtime is their favorite time of day! Farm guests are invited to help "Farmer Dale" with chores on Saturday and Sunday mornings after breakfast, including feeding Weatherbury's feathered friends: geese, guineas, chickens and ducks.

Our Araucana chickens  over-night in the Weatherbury Farm Chicken Coop (bottom left)  --  laying their colorful blue, green and pink eggs in old-fashioned nesting boxes.  A favorite chore --  collecting eggs from the chicken coop to their chores!

"This place is for the birds" By Curdwell Master Goose, Weatherbury Farm

as written for "Weatherbury Moos" September 1997


My name is Curdwell and I am the master goose at Weatherbury Farm Bed & Breakfast.  Simpleton is (at least in my opinion) the minor goose. We recently had  two new goose arrivals at the farm -- Mathilde and Brunhilde. I will pick the most beautiful one as my wife -- and by this time next year, there might be a whole gaggle of gooses to greet you when you visit the farm.
In addition to geese (the most important birds at the farm), there are a number of "lesser" breeds of birds. Our Indian Runner Ducks are land ducks that run instead of waddling. I have appointed myself their drill sergeant. Simpleton is in charge of the wood ducks.
We also have guineas. Recently one of them had a whole bunch of keets (that's guinea for baby guineas). They are very cute and follow their mother everywhere. There is also a small flock of bantam chickens. The young whipper-snappers are up at the break of day, to loudly greet each day (and wake me up!).
When you visit, please remember that the following phrases are politically goose incorrect: "Silly goose", "Cook one's goose". "Goose bumps" (unless used positively) and "Goose egg."
