    Same here. Last year, I got my 1st African egg on valentine's day. I wouldn't be surprised if they start earlier this year, as we have had an extremely mild January so far.

    Great pictures! I would love to get some geese, had a Toulouse and a Chinese as a kid, just got back into chickens too. Where you guys suggest on purchasing a pair? Haven't been too impressed with hatchery reviews with chickens and have been hatching my own. Not sure of the success rate of geese, would rather get hatchlings. Thanks!
