    If you buy a "Pair" of geese from a hatchery, are they male/female? It would make sense if they were, but I want to make sure. I had a choice from Ideal of having male, female, st run, or a pair. I chose the pair. They weren't marked or anything with which was which though.

    Quote:With those choices and if you paid more for the 'pair' I would have to presume they sold you a mating 'pair'.

    You could call the hatchery for their explanation.

    That would have been the logical solution, wouldn't it? I need more coffee. [​IMG]

    A pair is a male and female goose, gosling. You can order a male and female from Cackle Hatchery, just incase you wanted to know.

    Awesome, thanks. I was assuming that they were, but there's always that chance...

    Many places only sex goslings if you're ordering a pair, so they make sure you get one of each.
