Waiting list.. - Page 2
Ordering some Buff Africans from Johnson's today. I spoke with a lady on the phone and she seemed very polite and was very helpful. And did I mention how low their prices were!? Cheap charge on small orders and very reasonable shipping charges. They'll hatch in the next couple weeks she said!
Buff African geese are my favourite! Can't wait until you get them!
Yes i do raise them. I should have buff african goslings hatching in the incubator either tomorrow or Saturday along with brown african geese
African geese are raised like any other breed but need protection from cold weather. They are either very smart or really stupid which makes me love them. They can be every tame. They are a very rare breed with the buff colour is very hard to find and buff african geese tend to be overpriced a lot of the time. here where i live we never see buff or white african geese and i was just lucky to find 5 of them for a reasonable price. People can cross buff african geese to cross with the brown african geese to produce different buff bloodlines.
Brown african gander with buff african goose = ALL Brown offspring
Brown ganders carry buff genetically [call this B/B1]
Brown geese DO NOT carry buff genetically speaking
B/B1 gander X Buff African goose = 1/2 males AND 1/2 females Brown
and 1/2 males AND 1/2 females Buff
B/B1 gander X pure Brown female = All males Brown
1/2 females Brown AND 1/2 females Buff
Buff gander X pure Brown female = All ganders Brown [this is B/B1]
=All geese Buff
I'm currently doing this with my African geese.
It's just interesting to know i guess ;)
Was just over checking out the Metzer web site. They are now showing Super Africans available out of their May 23rd hatch if you are still interested.
