    I am really interested in getting some, but cant find anyone who has them available.

    Does anyone on the forum own, sell, or ship them? I REALLY want some!!! [​IMG]

    I was just talking to a guy on the phone who had a pair for sale in Oconto Nebraska. He gave me the numbers of some breeders in Missouri (I think.)

    So I guess some people own them.. [​IMG]

    ETA: I also found out they are WAAYYYY out of my price range. lol

    You might just need a permit to breed them or you might even need a permit to own. Probably depends where you are. They are gorgeous though.

    Maybe another rare breed? Nature's Hatchery has Barhead Geese which are pretty cool looking.

    ETA: Oh my! Just saw the price for a pair. Whoa nelly! Don't suppose I'll be getting those anytime soon.

    Oh yes! I didn't mean to imply they had wild geese for sale, just that you can find unusual geese from them. [​IMG]
