    Beautiful Geese but I don't know of any breeders on here. The breed past is quite sad though [​IMG]

    There are a few good breeders out there. However, it's expensive to import birds. I believe there are a few breeders in the US but they probably have long waiting lists.

    Thanks everyone - Steinbachers are more common in England and Europe, in the US I only know of a few breeders. They truly are a beautiful fowl.

    If you do a google search, you will get a lot of photos, and also a couple of websites for breeders in the USA.

    I don't know any of those breeders, so you are on your own about evaluating whether or not to purchase from them.
