    Im looking for a gosling and a friend of mine is looking for 3 - 4 chicks. We were thinking of splitting a order but im having a hard time finding places that let you combine chickens and waterfowl.
    So, so far I got Ideal poultry and Purely Poultry as an option. The problem is, Ideal sells most of their geese from February to May and then the chicks go back in stock in june [​IMG] Does anyone know if they ever have chicks for sale in may?
    Purely poultry will sell 1 duck, 1 goose and also 5 chicks but the chicks need to all be the same variety [​IMG]
    They say that they are willing to combine certain types of birds to meet the minimum but do you think they would let me do 1 goose and 4 chicks instead of 2 geese or 5 chicks? Just thought I would ask, but ill call them about it tomorrow
    So, does anyone know of hatcheries that have small orders of geese and chicks?

    Ideal may have chicks available before June. Go to the web page for the breed and sex you are interested in, then click the "Notify Me" button. The chicks I wanted were listed as not available until May. I believe this was maybe three weeks ago. Ideal called a day or two after I put my info in at the Notify Me button and I was able to order the chicks - they arrived today.

    Check with Cackle, when I wanted to order turkeys from them, I didnt want the full 15 for the min order so I just got 10 and ordered some chicks to fill the rest.
