    I ordered a pair of them from ideal. Does anyone have them? I have heard that they are mean, is this true? They are of course going to be raised and hopefully tamed from a very early age.

    Well I don't have experience with older ones but our china goslings are wonderful! We got them at about 8 weeks old and they are about 4 months old now and they are great. We hand feed I know there are differing opinions on that but ours do well and they are great watch dogs even for their young age!

    I'm kind of freaking out because i've been trying to call the post office and nobody is answering and they never called this morning...it is now 7:21, I guess i'll try again at 8:00 when they are open.

    :mad: Well since the post office failed to call me like they were supposed to and didn't answer my phone calls they are now on a truck being delivered to my house. I wanted to pick them up... I hope they will be ok...the man there said they looked fine when he peeked in on them this morning.
