    They said they couldn't list them as individuals, so I don't know.

    Yeah I'm no help there sorry! In my opinion anything other than the Tufted breeds would be nice. ;)

    Purely poultry has a fancy goose package


    The following breeds may be included: Buff, Brown Chinese, Pilgrim, Roman Tufted, Sebastopol, Super African, Tufted Buff, Tufted Toulouse.

    But they also have tufteds mixed in :/ strombergs has rarer types of geese for a decent price too. I wonder if you could request no tufteds in your order? Some hatcheries will try to work with you a little bit like that. Cause it's only 2 breeds out of 7, that still should give them a good amount to choose from. I dunno it never hurts to ask...worst they can say is no! ;)

    I've also never been a fan of tufted waterfowl, I don't mind chickens with tufts but the other birds just look doufy to me lol!

    I al

    I already ordered 8 geese anyways so it's too late now. I like the "normal" Hesse when they're all the same basically except for the colors. You know American, Toulouse, Embden, they're simple looks are the best in my opinion.

    Yeah I know what you mean...I like some variety, I've got some Toulouse right now but I'm hoping to get another breed sometime soon. Not really picky about what kind, just something that looks different from Toulouse. :) and that's cool about the goslings, what kind(s) did ya get?
