    UDATED I am adding one picture at a time for you to see, they take forever to upload from photo bucket so as they up load I will put them on here. If any body has any guesses waht breed, i'd like to know... Pics on page 2 also...one there now.

    My geese arrived today from Holderread waterfowl farm! I ordred the exhibition gosling addortment (12) and bargain gosling assortment (4) and they sent me extras! (Do they usually do that?) I ordered 16 total and recieved 19!

    I have no idea what I got though lol. I know that there are some Pomeranians or Shetlands and a tufted roman.

    Are geese breeds easy to tell apart as goslings? Or do some look a lot alike?

    these are similiar then the first 3, but the beaks are not spotted/two toned, they are more solid and not as dark on thier backs.

    They are neat aren't they. I received Shetland goslings from them a week ago. One of them was dead plus another one died two days later. I'm still enjoying the other four and would order from them again.

    I agree we need to see pictures.

    Okay Okay, let me take pics when My dh gets home....he stole my camera...YES I had a very good experience, as they sent me 3 extra!

    I had a little note under the lid that said "tell Mr. B------ M------ hello from his brother B----- (sorry left out names for privacy) haha that was such a small world though... A teacher from my daughters school is brothers with some one who apparently packs the goslings! NEAT....they treated me right..

    I'd like to see pictures of the shetlands to see if I have any in my order lol.....I will get on the pictures asap.

    Oh I can't wait to see pics! How fun to get all different kinds! As far as Holderreads is concerned they ar great in my opinion. I've gotten both geese and ducks from them. The buff geese I just got are HUUUUUUUUUUUUGE. Literally they were born twice the size of my own goslings.
