    From Holderreads first release of a small breed of goose they've been working on for the last ten years. A mix of several small breeds including a Lesser White Breasted/domestic mix. They are very small, about the size of a medium duck. They seem to be sweet and friendly and are settling in very well. Sorry for the poor picture. They are in a dim barn for now. Better pics to follow. The two girls are white and gray and the boy is a blue splash.

    I was eyeing some of those, myself! Let me know how you like them! I'm going there this spring for a pair of lavender sebbies, some more silkie ducks and another cayuga duck...

    If they set (don't know about this year) I will have eggs/goslings. I wish I could keep them all, but that's not going to happen!

    I was really surprised at how small they turned out to be. They are very solid, but I think they are between 5-7 or 8 lbs. They have a tiny honk too!
