    HI
    Is it a good goose farm? Are their geese "better" than the ones in other hatcheries (ex: are they taller? heavier?)

    Holderread is one of the most premier breeders of waterfowl in the US... Dave literally wrote the book on raising ducks (Storey's Guide to Raising Ducks) and wrote others... I definitely wouldn't compare them to an average hatchery... I think the prices are a bit more than a hatchery, but I doubt you would regret a purchase from them... :)

    He also wrote The Book of Geese and many bulletins and APA standards. You want find better quality anywhere and their cause is undeniable.
