    I cant find anybody that has any goose eggs. I've looked on Craigslist everyday and I have also posted ads but no responds, just scams. I have asked around and haven't found anybody who has any. I just recently had a goose that i got from this lady and it had a messed up joint, i was helping her learn how to walk because she couldn't. She was obviously raised in a bad environment, well i was getting attached to her but the other day i walked in the room that i had her in and found her dead. I had her in a 50 gallon water tub with straw and stuff so she could stay separated, somehow she got out of it and hit the boards i had up blocking the wholes so the baby chicks couldnt get in the wholes in the wall,and they fell on top of her and killed her. I cried once i saw it. As i thought about it, i enjoyed having a goose and now want some goose eggs to hatch but cant seem to find anybody with them, Any suggestions? I don't want to order them from a magazine or hatchery, i would like to get them from somewhere close. I live in Greensboro.

    You could try posting in the Items Wanted to Buy section of the forum. [​IMG] You might want to specify how many you want, what breed/breeds you are interested in, if you want pure/mixed, how close is close, and the like. Goose season is almost done, so not many people have eggs. Good luck though! I hope you find some. [​IMG]

    It's pretty late in the season for geese, most people let theirs go broody by now. You might have better luck ordering goslings from a hatchery, I'm sure some still have goslings available [​IMG]

    You can also try Ebay. There are still some sellers that have goose eggs available.

    I live in West Palm Beach, FL and have a pair of Embden geese. Gertrude is still laying, about once every other day or so. Send me a PM and we can work out details. I have 3 eggs right now ready to put in the mail if you'd like to give them a try.
