    A day late and one duck dead cause he was trampled by the geese. Ugh

    Why do they ship them together? [​IMG]

    congrats on your new babies!

    sorry you lost one...but they probably put them all together due to the number you ordered and wanting them to stay warm for their journey to you.

    what breeds did you get? i have an order of 9 geese that ship out May 2nd and am excited for them

    Yippee… My husband said I could get a couple to talouse. But now I feel bad because really I don't necessarily need them I just want them.

    I have a Sebestapool before and A talouse before from hatchery when I ordered only emdens.

    I was completely new with geese and just thought oh I guess they're just different kind of emdems. Lol. Till the kids got to the fair and the judges said no these are not Emdens. [​IMG]

    And what talouse actually took reserve Champion in the meat category. lol

    When I called the hatchery to tell them. They said there is no way that that happened because they don't even sell those types of birds.[​IMG]

    What's really funny is that happen again the next year. From the exact same hatchery. I don't remember what hatchery it is now .
