    I'm expecting a pair of African goslings and some chicks to come in the mail tomorrow morning! I have never had goslings before. I am raising them until they get some feathers for my friend who has a farm. I can't wait to meet them tomorrow! They are getting picked up at the post office and then I am bringing them to one of my college classes to do my presentation on imprinting. I will post pictures as soon as i can.

    Yes! African goslings are the best! (sorry I'm biased about this breed). If you bond too much with the goslings you will find it really difficult to let them go to the farm ;)

    Can anyone tell me what time did your babies arrive at the post office? I called this morning and they told me they didn't get them yet and maybe they will come in the afternoon. I'm worried about them.

    After a huge ordeal of calling a bunch of different post offices i finally found them. They were not at my post office and the post office decided not to call the number on the box. But they are home safe now! Meet Squishy and Honker.[​IMG]
