    I had almost given up on owning Sebastopols when I found a BYC member (Broke Down Ranch) raising them only 2 1/2 hrs from me.

    I picked up my trio yesterday! They followed me everywhere today and explored the 4 acres we have fenced off for a yard.

    First they met a few of the other residents. This Marans rooster followed them all day, and slept about a foot from them when they napped.

    They explored THEIR tank, and took their first swim.

    They found the mud puddle in the drive.

    ...And at the end of the day, they had a little nap.

    I am so in love with them!!! Thanks so much Crystal - Broke Down Ranch. <pssssssst> if anyone's tempted, I believe she has a few more of these sweeties.

    I know, right... lol, I haven't gotten a flippin thing done all day long because I've been overdosing on cuteness!!!

    Yes, there is one boy and two girls, they were all hatched on the 10th. He's twice the size of the girls.

    She sells them $40 each, sexed. A HUGE bargain considering what I could have spent on shipped eggs to get 3 sebbies. She has a few left, but hurry if you want some, I bet they go fast.

    AWWWW, what great pics. Looks like they are settling in nicely! Just a reminder to cut those zip-ties off before they get too tight [​IMG] I'm so glad you like them. Just wish the weather was better so you could have visited all the critters....

    Quote:Aren't they beautiful when mature. I've had "Sebastopol envy" since the first pic I saw of them.

    What adorable geese! I hope you share pictures as they grow up. It'd be so much fun to watch them grow up with you.

    Thanks for the reminder, Crystal. I will get those cut off in the morning.

    Yes I wish we could have spent more time. I hope the soap making went well. BTW the Gray Dewlap and the Buffs are beautiful too.
