    What is the minimum order for Goslings through Cackle hatchery? I cant find it anywhere on their site.

    Here is what I found...looks like you can order as little as you want but they will fill up the box with male chicks like Ideal does if you don't get and order of 25 chicks or more. I will see what else I can find out. [​IMG]

    Looks like 15 is the minimum you can order...this does apply to all the fowl listed on their site.

    But is says minimum 15 CHICKS not GOSLINGS. That is what I dont understand. Unless they dont have a minimum for goslings.

    Most hatcheries have a 10 gosling minimum. Some breeders will do as few as 4.

    Cackle has a 4 goose 6 duck special right now, too.

    Well, I just ordered 3 female toulouse goslings and the order went through. I dont think that they have a minimum order. I just hope they dont add male chicks as extra warmers.
