    I'm just hopeing Holderreads don't sell their Bantam Breeds. They are starting to become very popular. I've been hearing rumors of Holderreads are thinking of selling all their geese breeds to lower the feed bill and work list. So if anyone is wanting some of those geese I would hurry up because I wouldn't be suprised if they sell all their flocks but a couple just to keep in a couple years

    I guess I'd better call Holderread. I've got a deposit paid on 4 Pomeranian goslings. If he is giving up geese, I'm going to have to drive over there and cough up the extra dough to buy adults right now.

    I got goose eggs from her this spring. No luck hatching but I hear that's a common theme this year and I'm afraid my broody Muscovy canibalized them anyway (wish I knew she was an egg eater before I planted those goose eggs under her butt!). I thought she was done with the birds and moving to the city... I just ordered Ancona hatching eggs from Plum Run Poultry so hopefully I can get my flock up and running without too much trouble.

    Seems like as hot as it is, it would really be hard to ship this time of year? Was reading where someone received 45 chicks in Fla yesterday. I still think I'd be leary of ordering till it is cooler.

    I thought so too but she still is selling ducklings and eggs. [​IMG]
