Domestic goose, taking a morning dip
Each individual at the CWR has an individual personality.
Guests living at the CWR
Chines Geese gaggle. When a new male Chinese Goose arrives he will organize or join a "family". Geese like to be with each other.
Romeo, Chinese Goose, sweet boy. He is often around the backyard. He is lovable and has favorites, who are allowed to pick him up (he give permission). Chinese Geese are domestic bred and cannot fly.
Recognizing you Chinese Goose
I know this is Romeo by his chin wattle. Each goose has a different one. One of big males has a double wattle, very distinctive.
Official Backyard Greeter
Domestic Tom Turkey, sweeter than he looks. He sort of floats around the back door and allows stroking and cooing.
White Muscovy Duck
I think this is a "she", I managed to catch her in a moment of stillness. Photographing chickens, ducks and geese is really a challenge.
The girls. There are something like 19 billion domestic chickens out there. Personally, once you get to know them, and each one is a separate individual, eating chicken becomes a challenge.

Cinese Goose Walking
Morning stroll along the little bit of pavement on the 11 acre Carolina Waterfowl Rescue
When I saw this picture on the computer I was knocked out by the size of the duckling's wonderful yellow feet!

Little Silkie chick, I have never seen this kind of chicken before. They are covered in soft fluffy feathers and come in all colors.
Pekin or Peking Duck and a big duckling.
Lets all take a bath! They love their water and the volunteers are busy changing it all day long. The birds seem to create mud where there is none.
