    Kim in your case the white sounds like the right choice for next spring. Since you have the room to grow out you can pick the fall keepers to breed back.

    This is how we have set up our breedings and hope I have put the right geese with each other. I have been working on pairing them up for several years. I do know the first pair make great looking sebbies. Sure do hope this year works out better than last season. There were fighting with everyone male hormones going crazy to pertect their mates. three females trying to get into on nest. [​IMG]So hopefully with putting in the dividers and we will be putting doors on them to keep the pairs or trio's in their own pens and nests.

    Here are who I plan to breed with each other for the 2013 season.

    All you have to do is ask whoever you want to get sebbies from. I my self will put someone on a waiting list but will NOT take deposits because you can never guarantee color or sex or how many goslings will hatch for the season. Some you can tell the color at birth but most goslings look pretty much alike.

    Barb (RURU) doesnt toot her own horn well enough, you will love goslings from her if you chose to be on her waiting list.

    I fully understand! How much do you ask for your goslings? And do you ship day olds? I guess I will just keep checking with you as it gets closer. I have a pair of white sebs. And I sold off my splash as they weren't the best quality for me to keep better off great pets!

    For our goslings I ask $55.-$65.00 per goslings. Minimum of goslings in warm weather 3. Max 4 or more in cooler weather. This is so the goslings can keep warm. If I have to put in a heating pad it is and extra $3.00.Also there is a shipping box for the goslings charge.
    No guarantee on colors or sex of goslings.
