    well im thinning my flock out some, 3 ducks and a sebright pair to order some geese, I was looking at ideal and see they have assorted and chinese in, I definetly dont want Duckzilla chasing me later (chinese) but if Chinese is all they have in then what on earth would be coming in the assortment? will I get other breeds?

    we have Chinese and they are not mean at all! I think it really depends on how they are raised. I do not know what they would send in the assortment.

    Or order from Holderread. If you have limited space, investing in quality stock makes it easier to rehome any future offspring.

    You should email them your question. I've always found them to be very prompt at answering queries by email.

    I ordered geese from ideal when we were at our old house... We only ordered embden & toulouse. Do you mean they are sold out of the other breeds & the chinese are the only geese they have now? They have future hatch dates for the other breeds if you look at their site.

    A good friend of ours has chinese geese. They aren't mean, just very "chatty" [​IMG] I did adore my toulouse and embden geese though. My tulouse pair were very tame, and excellent parents.
