Don’t slay the golden goose

DURING a recent trip back to Melaka, one unbelievable story about a gander laying a clutch of eggs created quite a buzz among locals and tourists.

According to news reports, both the gander named Jeep and its female mate Rose brooded their own batch of eggs, the former under a serai wangi (citronella grass) clump and the latter in a regular coop.Did the eggs eventually hatch? Was the gander a “closet goose” that returned to its original gender? No one seems to know because there were no follow-up stories to the original reports.
