    I ordered from Metzer Farms a few weeks ago, and they called yesterday to tell me that they were not able to fill my gosling order! I have been looking at some other hatcheries, but most seem to be sold out. Does anyone know where I may be able to find either some Embden or Toulouse? Thanks so much!!

    Geese laying season is almost over. All hatcheries this year are having bad hatches with ducks and geese even breeders are.

    I'd try Craigslist. In my area, there have been some postings for geese, goslings, and hatching eggs (although that is probably done for the year).

    Have you checked if Holderreads still has geese?
    Last I checked they did and they have a bargain assortment for $9/goose minimum 4 order.
    Good luck on your search, geese are such a joy to be owned by.
