    On Saturday my pair of 4 Week old Gray Toulouse geese were lounging by the chickens eating grass when the neighbors dog slipped his collar and attacked. They stood no chance. I am now searching for another pair. I live in the Tri-City area of Michigan. Please let me know if anyone has any goslings in the area.

    Thanks

    I hope your neighbor is at least paying for the replacements, and the food you fed to the geese his dog killed. It is clearly his legal responsibility to do so.

    Neighbor is paying to replace plus extra for food. Having a difficult time trying to replacements without going through a hatchery. I have been unable to get anyone locally to sex goslings. I will have them replaced. Great personality in the Toulouse.

    She might, but I think she has only buff and blue americans...I could be wrong.

    I'm so sorry that you lost your babies, stupid dog! [​IMG] Post on the MI people thread on here as well, that way more in your area will see it. [​IMG]
