So I've done it. I've stuck to my goal of living on ramen and eggs in order to purchase a pair of purebred Pilgrims out of the original Ashbrook line. The pair should be arriving in early February. Hopefully early enough for them to settle in and start laying eggs. I really doubt I'll be selling any eggs from the pair this year - especially since I'm all nervous about the age of the female (she's extremely old). I've never had adults shipped to me from across the country. Absolutely any advice for settling the pair in, making them comfortable, and getting them to lay this year would be greatly appreciated. I'm still not sure whether to put another goose in with the pair or not. On one hand, I think the gander could handle two females. On the other, I don't want to stress the older female out. Gah.
