    I've shipped more ducks and goslings than I can count, but shipped my 3rd and 4th adult geese today.

    They were ****** to be in the box (hence why they wouldn't look at me for a picture). Haha, but are going to great homes! One is headed to Ohio and the other to Colorado.

    I've been working with Sebastopols for a few years now so it's nice to finally have some birds that are nice enough that other people want them. I am VERY fond of these splashes and can't wait to see how this years goslings turn out!

    Just a question for those who ship adults often: Where do you get your boxes? It's not very cost effective to buy 1 or 2 boxes at a time, and they are quite expensive to ship even without a goose in them. I'm currently using the OMNI shipper for singles and have some of the swan boxes for pairs. [​IMG]
