One lucky little Ryan Gosling

KAT Bullen thought a mushroom was growing in the cattle yard at Hervey Bay State High School when she found an abandoned bird egg.

To save the tiny life inside from being squashed by a stray hoof, Ms Bullen picked up the egg and started to incubate it.

"I spent three weeks thinking there was nothing alive in the egg,” she said.

"There was a 50/50 chance he was going to be an Ibis or a Magpie Goose.

"We named him Eggon (after both the lone egg and a Game of Thrones character).

"He also has the nickname 'Ryan Gosling'.”

Now filling in for mother goose Ms Bullen said one-month-old Eggon comes with her where ever she goes until he grows his feathers and can be soft-released.
