    I don't have any from them, but had called them. I was told that they couldn't fill anymore orders this year because they are filling the wait list from last year and probably wouldn't have any left. [​IMG] They said I "might" maybe get in for the last hatch around Jun, but that it was doubtful and that they could just then hold my deposit until next year.

    Did you already order them? I was just curious if you had been on the waitlist. I am still debating about waitlisting for next years.

    I ended up getting eggs from people who have Holderread stock.

    For many breeds you have to order them september or october in order to get them in the follow spring. Last year the wait list was longer.

    I'm not getting Sebbies from them, but I placed my order for my Brown Chinese last mid-summer, the minute they announced they were taking deposits for the 2009 hatch. I just got an email yesterday that mine will be shipping May 4th, w/the following 2 weeks as backup dates.

    They are getting older (aren't we all?) One of their fathers that took care of geese passed away either 2 or 3 years ago and they cut back the flock after that. Look around, people that got their stock there are usually proud of that fact.

    They are wonderful and beautiful geese. You can see mine on my web site on a couple different pages. Millie and Dave are very nice people and very helpful.

    Sigh - ya'll are making my worry! I just order ducklings from them last week, and assumed they would come over the next few weeks. I didn't get a date or estimated time of arrival from them (Magpie and Khaki Campbell). I hope she will tell me if they are coming a while from now...

    Hi - I have a gander that is directly from Holderreads. He has some saddleback genes. My goose is a descendant of Holderreads. I'll see if I can upload pics I just took. Now don't judge the water. It's 50 gallons and I changed it yesterday![​IMG]


    OK - I don't know how to add an image - if someone can tell me, I'll do it. Seemed like the Img icon would have done it but it didn't... I know others do it... How?

    Easiest way is to use photobucket and post the img link. . .

    Hmm - haven't used that before either. But I did just add the images to my BYC page. Hope that she can see them there. [​IMG]
