    I am wondering because they seem to be the only place to sell small orders of sexed geese, except Cackle hatchery, which does not have as many breeds.

    I think Metzer Farms sells sexed goslings in most breeds. I believe they have a relatively small ordering minimum.

    I looked at the catalog. The minimum is 8, I think.

    You can get as few as 2 birds from Metzers. You may have to pay more in shipping.

    When I ordered from them all I really wanted was 3 geese. I ordered a pair of American Buffs and an Embden. I also ordered 7 str pekin. It was cheaper to order the ducks and geese than just geese. I was very happy with my geese from Metzers. My buff gander is from thee and is very nice quality.
