It is a miracle of nature that an egg becomes a fluffy, living ball that is capable of trotting, swimming, eating, and drinking in short time. This ball of fluff can be shy or aggressive, domineering or dominated, stubborn or laidback. In ten weeks, this chick becomes a full-grown Canada goose that can sail high and far, its wondrous wild voice sounding across the vast expanse of sky.
Soon after they hatch, goslings begin pecking at small objects, and spend most of their time sleeping and feeding. They remain with their parents constantly, though sometimes “gang broods” form, especially in more southern latitudes. These can include at least two broods, and sometimes five or more, that travel, feed, and loaf together, accompanied by at least one adult.
Young often remain with their parents for their entire first year, especially in the larger subspecies. As summer wanes birds become more social; they may gather in large numbers at food sources; where food is limited and patchy, may compete with displays and fights.
