    "Farm Boy" picked them up yesterday and there was no packing slip. Could be any of the following from Holderreads...I requested Light and Medium Weigh Breeds only: Auto-Sexing Shetland-Brown Chinese-Plain Headed Roman-Tufted Roman-American-Auto-Sexing Pilgrim-Pomeranian-Sebastopol
    Although I requested NO heavy weight breeds, it does say on their website that they choose the Assortment
    African
    Embden
    Toulouse

    Very cute. I don't know what you've got there, but they don't look like our American Buff goslings.

    Well...I just hope I get more females then males. BTW...I have a Blue Swedish duck and would love to find her a boyfriend. She's been laying me a nice big egg everyday since December. I've hatched out a few of her babies, but they were fertilized by my Cayuga's. They're all cuties!

    The second to last looks like a tufted roman to me. [​IMG]
    I have no idea about the rest though.

    Thanks...That was my guess also. I'm thinking the dark legged/beaked one is a Pilgrim?

    Whatever #4 ends up being, you should name it Alf. It looks just like that old TV alien.

    If they are from Holderreads it should say on the underneath of the lid what they are. Thats where they usually put the info.

    They were not shipped. "Farm Boy" picked them up yesterday from Holderreads personally and there was no packing slip, writing on the box, etc. Yeah, I know I'll figure it out once they get bigger, but in the meanwhile it would be nice to know.


    UPDATE!! "Farm Boy" felt so badly that he didn't get the names, he called. Was told: "drum roll please!"

    Qty: 1 Tuffed Roman
    Qty: 2 American - 1 Blue-1 Lavender Ice
    Qty: 1 Buff African
    Qty: 2 Embden (although Farm Boy said in Germany it's really Emden )

    So...I was way off on thinking I got a Pilgrim...[​IMG]
    Thank you all for playing along.
