    Hey I need some help to see if this is worth going for. Okay, there is a lady that lives near me that has 21 pilgrim geese, 7 trios for sale and she is selling them for $625 for all 21 and they were $950 for all but she could not sell them for that. So , my questionis, is this a good deal? Oh and they are registered, and exhibition geese bc she has shown me where she has won metals and other prizes for showing them.

    Thanks:D

    If they are show quality geese than that is an excellent deal. Pet quality geese around here go from 25 - 40. Excellent quality birds start at about 50 here.

    Quote:I have never heard of a 'registered' goose, metals could be from any level from county fair on up. The important thing is do you like the way they look? Pilgrims are not that tricky to judge. they are fairly plain and unless mismarked what you see is what you get. Do you want to carry that many geese over the winter? The price sounds right.

    Thank u guys for the help. And i have other geese and I have a huge house for the geese that is heated well, so yh it would not be a problem to carry them through the winter.
