I just came from Metzer where I was thinking I could reserve some goslings and it looks like he's sold out for the year by end of Jan and offering no shipping dates.

Been wanting auto sexing geese for a long time now and I haven't had much luck finding them for sale. Any ideas? I'm in NE Texas but my work schedule doesn't leave me a lot of time to travel.

I can't help you with those particular breeds (I breed Tufted Romans) but I can tell you that those aren't the only auto sexing breeds :)

The reason those breeds are autosexing is the sex-linked dilution gene (Sd). This gene is also present in every white breed, since it is the combo of this gene and the pied gene that creates the white color.

So most white breeds are also auxo sexing, if you know what to look for in the down. Not as obviously as the ones you're looking for, but still technically auto sexing. So if you don't mind picking a white breed (not Chinese or African, those genetics are different) you could have more options.

That said, McMurray hatchery has pilgrims: https://www.mcmurrayhatchery.com/pilgrim_geese.html
