    My pair is priceless.

    However, are you looking to sell them as utility geese, meat geese, or breeders?

    Or, hopefully not, are you pricing them because a neighbor's dog killed them and you need to know what to charge the neighbor to replace them?

  5. Here there's not a big market for geese -- I've seen them going for $30 a pair or less even. Depends on where you are located - here people think they are mean and dangerous . . .

    Here they go from $30 to $50 a pair for breeding. When you get ready to sell them you need to let people know that the Troulouse is a very calm goose unless threatened, and are one of the best meat geese around. I have Chinese and Troulouse and the Chinese are the meanest of the two. Geese are also good watch dogs and make intertaining pets. I take my extra to the farmers market and the Saturday flea market and post an information board next to my cage so that newcomers to geese can read a little about them. Good luck.

    We paid $60 (in Ohio) for our male and $35 (in IL) for our female...I sell hactching eggs in the spring, I was getting $60 for 4 hatching eggs last yr. We just love our geese..I can stand in the yard and yell for them wherever they are at and they will fly to me...they are so funny..cars slow down when they see 6 geese flying to a person standing in the yard..priceless!
