    well im not sure. different areas different prices. I would say if they are grown $20 up to $40. people normally sell babies for $8. If i had a pair i would sell them for $20. so maybe the question should be what would YOU want to pay for them?? [​IMG]

    that is about what I thought they should be and I am very willing to pay that...I jus' needs some gooses to complete my happy little group...these are yearlings...I have lots of fenced room for them...I looked at some adult Toulouse last week end but they were not in very good shape and I left them where they were...I did find 8 ducklings that were precious and affordable...4 Pekins and 4 Rouens...they were newling hatched and had not even had water or food...just dry and peeping...too cute...

    well...I went and looked at the geese...she had so many...they were in good shape and the price was right...25 for an adult pair...my son and his wife bought me two pair as my birthday present, not that I needed reminding that I am 63 today...but the geese are gorgeous...lo and behold when I went to tuck them in tonight I had a goose egg...biggest darned egg I have ever seen...woohoo! The people had a really pretty Jersey milk cow and as we were standing there looking at the flock of ducks and the many geese, the cow sneaked up on my DIL and proceeded to lick the back of her shirt...it was hilarious as she had never been any closer to a cow than a gallon of milk at the grocery and she nearly stroked out when she turned around and was eye ball to eye ball with the cow...I love my geese...Brown Chinese and so pretty...we loaded one of the females and her guy came to the fence honking and snorting, demanding to know what the devil we were doing with his babe...in the truck he went...they are lovely...
