Got more Dewlap eggs to set shortly and also may have the chance for some Sebastopol eggs. I should resist the Sebastopol really as the Dewlaps are more than enough.  Help Help the urge is getting stronger droolindroolindroolin

i wanted  Toulouse  eggs but couldnt find any locally. cant even find any adults locally. geese prices are going through the roof locally because of spring and breeding season.

i really like the tufted  Toulouse.

I'm new to hatching geese. How many days to hatch?  Look forward to learning more.

There's time yet for eggs as I've an older female and 2010 buff Dewlap thats not started laying yet.  Also my 2010 exhibition Rouens are just sitting by the pond getting fat and lazy, not a sign of an egg from them rant

Lovely, lazy and lacking libido! hmm





Hoping to hear if those Sebastapol eggs are available this evening.  Hope the lady's sold the lot and placed temptation out of my way otherwise I'll just have to sneak them into the incubator and pretend they're Dewlaps for as long as I can get away with it!!!!! hide   smack
