    I ordered a sexed pair of Toulouse goslings from Ideal and they arrived with 14 RIR packing peanuts back in July. 2 were pullets, the rest were cockerels. I am keeping the pullets but the cockerels went to a friend's Freezer Camp coop to grow out for processing.

    I tried to keep one RIR roo but I already have several roosters of various breeds. When he reached sexual maturity he started attacking and raping pullets - not a nice boy at all.

    Your mileage may vary...

    They tend to send production reds that are mistaken for RIR.
