    Quote:It is off season for babies right now, In a normal year you would have to wait until at least mid Feb for them to start to lay with first babies hatching in mid March but this has been a strange year so there may be a few availablle yet.

    Hi all,

    It seems that I should clarify,

    I am looking for a supplier of goose chicks.. I am not looking for the chicks now, I am looking for a supplier so I can determine whether they are available to me in Nova Scotia. If they are something I can get here then I will continue to learn all about geese, if they are not something I can get I will turn my attention elsewhere.

    Anyone who can help answer my inquiry would be appreciated.

    Thanks so much.

    Holderreads Duck and Goose Farm ship out of the US and have high quality stocks. If interested:D[​IMG] you might want to get in contact with them soon since they are running low on some breeds this time of the year.

    Good luck Dorothy asebastopolsselect.com

    I need to add to my message. Holderreads will have you put a deposit on the goslings to hold them until it is time to ship them.Dorothy

    Hi Dorothy and thanks for your reply, I am unsure whether I can import birds but will certanly check into it.

    We won't be ready until the spring anyway, I just started to build the co-op now and my spouse.... well he's planning on fencing 2.5 acres [​IMG] before next spring (most of it wooded) and uilding a pond from a natural spring he found on the property ... winter is just about to set in soooo it will be a while [​IMG]

    I will let know know when I find out on importing though.

    Cheers

    Shipping: Day-olds are mailed insured Priority Mail and delivered to your post office, normally 12 to 60 hours after they leave us. (Due to postal regulations, hatchlings cannot be shipped via the postal service into Canada. Our Canadian customers have their birds shipped to a stateside post office for pick up. Let us know to which U.S. town you wish them mailed. Payment must be made by money order or bank check in U.S. dollars.)
