|This is a transcript of my text on the video:
We raise 16 goslings in captivity. they are imprinted on us.
Elise de Jong is their goose mother.
When she calls, the goslings come to her.
The experiment measures the development of the immune system and the effect of intestuinal parasites.
We use the goslings also to study diet choice and digestion. We can observe them eating and collect their droppings for later analysis.
You can hear them peep...
We enjoy these litle buggars.
Today it rains, The goslings get wet fast and we bring them in under a warm light.
They make typical sounds when they feel cold.
