    i have been reading up some on the red breasted geese and really like the fact that they are small. Just wondering if anyone on here has them and what your thoughts are on them. How easy they are to breed, how aggressive are they if any, are they loud birds or not so loud. I am working on getting my 900 sq ft Aviary done this weekend and then plan on starting another one sometime this summer and thinking about getting some of these for the second Aviary this fall.

    here in europe we have allot of them, they are easy to keep in pair or group my pair is not agresive and this year they should start to produce egs or chiks,
    i do know that they cost aroun 2000 dollar a pair in the usa
    they are strong in the winter but they dont like to much heat

    I think they are running around $1200 a pair now from what I am seeing.

    I called that person a few days ago and he said that all he had left was the young Cabot's pairs and an impeyan breeder pair, so the red breasteds probably sold fast at that cheap of a price.
