    Holderreads has some of the best waterfowl in the country. They are not a hatchery per se.

    I dont believe so. I think they just have day olds in spring and adults at this time of year.

    I looked at their website. They do not sell pilgrim goslings.

    I think I heard that Metzers bought all of Holderreads pilgrims. You might check with them.

    Their
    website says they will send as few as 2 ducklings or goslings. The website should give all the information or contact them to find out. Sometimes there is an extra charge for whatever they use to keep just a few warm during shipping.
