    Who has these?
    Are they good natured?
    About how much do hatching eggs run?
    Do you know if anyone has hatching eggs?

    Thanks

    I don't have them, but want some. Go over to the Geese section--there's a Sebastopol thread there.

    If you get them from a good breeder who considers temperament when breeding, they are supposed to be one a good natured goose. So are Cotton Patch geese.
