    A wonderful lady that had shown us how to set up brooder boxes years ago saw an ad that I had up selling extra bb poults. We talked about what I had been up to with birds and I mentioned how I want to get into raising and preserving Beltsville Whites and Pilgrim geese. Apparently, she was trying to re-home four pilgrims, as she wants to raise a different breed of goose....

    Thursday evening, via a Subaru station wagon, they arrived here and my extra white poults left. I still owe some other poultry as they hatch/mature but I am so thrilled to finally have something go my way with my birds this year.

    (I hatched out a pair of goslings earlier this spring that were suppose to be Pilgrims but I think that at least one of them is a cross due to it having a dark bill instead of bright orange.)

    How cool is that?! Congratulations on your new additions!

    Hmmm, I guess I should start telling everyone I see, about the kinds of chickens that I want. [​IMG]

    That's great! Doesn't it feel good when things finally go the way you would like them to go?!?! [​IMG]

    Hurrah for Pilgrims! I've had to drive hours in every direction to build up my flock but it was worth every minute [​IMG]

    I've been really tempted to try the Beltsville Whites. The only thing stopping me is that I'm not a huge fan of white turkeys. I want more color in my flock. I still keep eyeing those egg auctions with an itchy buying finger.
