    Here they are with goats and chickens for size comparison. Mine are a breeding pair of Oregon minis from Holderreads.

    Are they Sexlinked like Pilgrims and Shetlands ? They look like mini Pilgrims by the color.

    Quote:From Holderread's:

    Oregon Mini-Pilgrim*: Small, but very heavily muscled geese colored like standard Pilgrims. Despite their small appearance, they weigh a solid 8-10 pounds. Excellent natural parents and exceptionally good foragers.

    They are sure cute and pretty. How old are they, how long have you had them? How do they compare to other breeds in temperament and noise level? I had emdems before and have been considering normal sized pilgrims or sebbys.
