I have been watching the breed for about 5yrs now and seriously thinking about getting a Seabie for about 3. I have just about talked myself into it. I have decided to get one, and make it a house goose. My question is are males or females better pets? I would prefer a girl. However this is a long term comittment and would like the gender with a temperament I can live a long time with. Also are they like most geese and bond well with humans? I would prefer to get eggs, however my hatch rate is really bad with goose eggs. I think they bond better when you talk to them in the shell and are there when they hatch. I don't know anyone that sells eggs, and I would need about 6 to get one. Ya.. I really stink at goose eggs. What do you think is my best bet? Anyone that has raised them, or had one for a pet I would love to hear from.
