    It's always a great pity when the predator takes the females :/

    I don't know of anyone in VA with geese for sale, but you can order geese online from several hatcheries.

    Try Craigslist in the area where you live-there is usually something available via Craigslist. Remember to keep the new ones separated from your males until you know the girls are healthy and your ganders are accustomed to them.

    I've tried Craigslist several times and if I buy geese from a hatchery they will be babies and its out of season and I'll have to wait till they are adults thanks for the help

    Try to search for local chicken swap pages on Facebook and post that you are in search of adult geese. It's how we got our geese. :)
