    What kind of geese are you looking for? Are you looking locally or would want them shipped.

    I was looking at white Chinese or African? But I don’t really have a preference. I don’t mind paying for shipping as long as it’s safe haha

    It's too hot to ship right now but later when it starts cooling it will be okay. I don't raise either one of those. I raise sebastopols. Geese tend to be spring layers so you may have to wait until next spring to find some. There are several hatcheries that sell both chinese and African geese. But again it will be spring. I'd check craigslist if i were you. I just looked for San Antonio and there are several for sale there and fairly reasonable priced.

    I had to look the breed up, they are beautiful! But I believe would be too hot in the summers here even with my large pond... that’s a lot of feather haha. But thank you very much. I forget about Facebook...

    Actually I have many many goose customers in Texas. But that is neither here nor there.

    Hello, we are in Devine, TX, not too far from SA.
    I got none to sell but I have a couple of African geese. They are a great alarm system! Very territorial.
    And yes, it is too hot right now.
    I love them.
