    Advice needed on gosling with yolk sack.

    I recently hatched out two Sebastopol goslings one completely healthy normal boy and another girl who had some difficulties. She hatched very enthusiastically completely on her own but for some reason hatched with the yolk attached, after some reading I think it may have been due to humidity...

    Michigan - Searching for Toulouse Hatching Eggs

    I’m looking for Toulouse hatching eggs anywhere in Michigan that I can pick up. The weather right now can’t make up its mind and I feel like it would be too cold to ship at since night time temperatures are still in the 20s in northern Michigan.
