    Picking up three sibling Sebastapol goslings after work today. I hatched out two from the eggs I incubated but a raccoon reached through the narrow bars of a portable dog kennel and killed them.

    Unsure what mix (all males, all females, or one of one and two of the other).

    Do not wish to breed back brother to sister if I have both a male and female.

    Is it possible to match up pairs next year if I can find non-related (or non-sibling) Sebastapol birds even if there is a year difference in age (i.e., offspring from eggs hatched next year coupled with goslings born this year)?
