We have goslings !

I haven't got a clue as to how many, I just caught a glimpse of one poking out from under the mother goose when I went to let the geese out this morning. I'll try and get a photo as soon as the vicious bitch will let me get near.
The geese have a full field of grass to feed on but what if anything should I be feeding to the young goslings ? They've obviously hatched overnight?

Not brilliant pictures but I managed to snap these. Mum, dad and aunt are all being very protective.

I usually just give them a little mixed corn in their shallow water bowl.
I think the geese get most but the goslings should not get much other than grass or they develop "angel wings".
We had two hatched Thursday.
