    John, I didn't get a notification on your questions. I gather some of my goose eggs, but mark some to leave with the goose hens too. I use a marker or pencil to recognize and mark what eggs I left. Geese take at least 28 days to hatch, I leave the eggs a full 5 days longer. The reason some goose...

    This has to be a favorite of the heritage birds for me. Beautiful, compact and so calm. Good seasonal layers. The roosters are amazing. Calm, dedicated and a really great table bird too. They do take time to mature.. but good things are worth a wait. This is not a high end egg producer.. be...

    I have only had heritage Dark Cornish, and the roosters are passive to me. I adore them, wonderful breed. I am a small person, 5 ft tall about 100 lbs. Never had a single aggression issue with them. The thing is, when a bird breed is mass produced, you get flaws that are not bred out. That's...

    Mine originated from RBA/Greenfire and the owner had to rehome due to rezoning. Mine were rehomed here sometime in November I think, didn't remember to record it.

    I acquired a pair of these birds a few months ago, estimated age around 6 months. Calm, friendly demeanor and the cockerel is even more social than the pullet. I have kept them on 20% flock raiser and am pleased they are still growing larger. My pullet has begun laying, at about 8 months of age...

    Bielefelder

    The Bielefelder is a relatively new breed, development beginning in the 1970’s by Gerd Roth in the area of Bielefeld, Germany, hence the breed's name. They were successful in creating a large fast maturing dual purpose breed with a kind calm temperament and excellent cold tolerance. The hens are...

    I raise coturnix for both eggs and meat. Easy to keep, non aggressive to people. Laws vary by state. For someone without a lot of room, its a great answer to fresh eggs! Really enjoyable birds, can be quite personable.

    I have 2 roosters I took in and enjoy them very much. Lovely color pattern! Our flocks free range all day, and they are very inexpensive to keep compared to other breeds. They socialize with my leghorns well, and have helped those hens become more friendly with us. I would love to add hens of...

    Got 2 LGs with these fans, turners, candlers for $107 each. Recently bought the 3rd LG "plain" - no add ons. I still intend to purchase or build a cabinet incubator, but couldn't pass up the sale prices. I use the 3rd LG to hatch, the other 2 with fans to incubate. Working out great, and I am...

    Beautiful eyes, and pristine white feathers. They are very clean as far as grooming. I have been around geese for 30 years. My Dad loves them, and Grandma wouldn't thought of being without one. You must love on them, and bond with them like a dog or cat. Oh they will play with a wiffle ball too...
