    I just sent in my order to Holderreads for a pair of Oregon Mini Geese Tell me what i need to know about them. Egg laying and anything that come to mind that you think i might need to know.

    Quote:They are pretty much like any other geese, just smaller. Dave says, correctly, that they fly, but often choose not to do so. That has been my experience with them. They also tend to be quieter than my other geese, however, the males make a high pitched squeaky sound that my neighbors did not like at all. I was forced to move them during nesting and did not get any offspring. They did not like the move at all and due to my not having checked the fence I had built around their new home, I missed an opening that they squeezed through never to be seen again. I enjoyed them a great deal.
