I am soooo excited. I have been asking my husband if I could get a pair of geese for two years and he finally said yes today! I already have LF chickens and Cayuga ducks. I told him I would like to hand raise the goslings so I would wait til July but after looking on-line, most places do not have them available then so I told him this. He said can you order them now? So I did! I ordered 4 African goslings from McMurray Hatchery. They will be here at the end of April. If anyone has anything they think I should know, please let me know. I have spent time reading about the different types of geese and what you have to do to keep them friendly and how to take care of them but I want as much information as I can get. I want to make sure I do the best I can for them.

With that said any breed can produce a naughty goose/gander though. Just some are more prone to it, and some are more prone to be calm and quiet.
Enjoy them and good luck with them.
So we got our 4 hatchery aftrican goslings this Wednesday and they definitely have a personality. Every time we go and work with them, they talk to us non-stop. They are very cute and so far, very friendly. I also got 6 female cayuga ducklings and one of the ducklings like to sleep on one of the goslings. It is very cute.
