    I have a trio and hope to have a few goslings this spring. I bought them the day after he posted mini geese for sale, and got some of his smallest ones. They are quite cute!

    I would say they weigh around 7-8 lbs each. The male has an attitude, like a lot of small dogs have. He will show off and act tough, but he backs down if you blink at him! The girls are very sweet. They can fly, and I haven't clipped their wings because I get such a kick out of their flying out of the barn when released. That's all they attempt because they are so bonded to the Sebs who don't fly. They are sex-linked like Pilgrims (which are prob in their genetic background). The males are white or are splashes and the females are gray and white. I got mine as adults last Feb., and they became tame fairly quickly when they figured out I was their provider of food and treats! I hope to have a few goslings in the Spring.

    I'm getting some from Dave also. I'll be getting 3 pair. I didn't know whether to get the mini pilgrims or his oregon minis. I'm liking the oregon minis though. I love your pictures! He only has the one picture up right now. Thank you so much for sharing.

    Oh, do you keep them alone, or are they mixed in with other fowl?

    How are the mini pilgrim and mine oregon geese noise wise???? and size on both.. types.. I hope since holderreads is selling all of theirs that there will still be some good breeders to get them from in the future.. I'd love a pair or trio of them one of these days
