    Does $75 sound like too much for a trio of un-sexed buff geese that are 4 months old?

    That's pretty high, but I bought a sexed pair of geese from Holderreads for 115 bucks, who are "show quality" at least genetically. A steeper price can be asked if the line are show winners, and that would be the first thing I'd think . . . are these high quality little darlings? Buff geese are somewhat "endangered" too, so that would add to the price.

    She had wanted $30 a bird...I talked her down. [​IMG] I'm soo excited! I had a trio before but they died of old age and never could hatch any babies. Is there anyway I can tell male from female, other than waiting til they lay eggs?
    Here is a picture of the geese!

    How long should I keep them penned (quarantine) before I let them out at the pond?

    Here are some pictures...one was born with a birth defect (I'm not too worried about it, it doesn't seem to bother him) I think it is the gander.
    Here is a pic of him.

    Picture or the females (I think).
