    I need to know if i need a mated pair of Toulouse geese to get eggs.

    We had a "rescue". it was a great addition to our flock. The ups guy ran it over. "she" never gave an egg.
    I would like to have them in my flock for the fun but would also like eggs.

    Thanks!!

    Females will lay eggs without a gander (but of course they won't be fertile). :)

    Thank you!!

    Now I just need to find some. Cackle hatchery show out of stock. McMurry has only straight runs. I would like a pair.

    any suggestions?
