    Ok since I absolutely fell in love with the pair of africans I bought last year from Holderreads I am going to order from Holderreads again, 2 pair of brown africans this time. And I was just wondering if I should add some of the $9 babies to the order to make sure the babies wont freeze when they are shipped in April/May. Maybe just 2 extras? Because when I bought my goslings last year they were shipped with a bunch of ducklings that I ordered at the same time to keep them warm. Im just worried that 4 isnt enough since they are coming all the way from Oregon. Any thoughts?

    A chance for more Geese? Defiantly [​IMG]

    As for your question I would think it would be a great idea just to be safe.

    I don't think you should worry to much about it. My four shipped fine from Oregan to Charlotte, NC last may. They were sectioned off in a little over half the box and packed with soft bedding
    There's always a chance, though, that something might happen where the babies will benefit from warmers, and its really fun to order assortments, where you have no idea what's going to come out of the box!
