    Wilmer, my 2014 Toulouse gander, is pretty bored with our chickens anymore and needs a girlfriend or two. However, I can't seem to find hatcheries that sell females only. I don't want to get another male because 1) our geese are pets and I don't want a huge amount of them and b) Wilmer is my baby and I don't want him in fights.
    Any suggestions as to where to get females? I don't care about the breed but Wilmer is mellow and friendly so I don't want anything aggressive like Embden geese.

    Well, if you would like to order from a hatchery, Ideal sells females separately from males. They even have Toulouse if you'd like to stick to the breed.

    Ideal is the only hatchery that I know of that allows female only orders. I ordered 2 females from them 2 years ago. I only ordered the 2 female buffs. They filled the box with rooster chicks for warmth.
