    ...(Sorry, I couldn't help that being from Massachusetts and all [​IMG])

    So anyway, I am very excited that I am finally going to get a pair of pilgrim goslings from Metzer Farms at the end of April. They bought all of Dave Holderreads pilgrims so I know they are excellent stock. My ten year old assistant (neighbor boy) is almost as excited as I am since that means he'll be working again soon which will give him money to buy more video games [​IMG]

    In between making Easter eggs for sale I'm designing a new goose house with the thought of future geese being in there with them.

    Oh the excitement is almost too much!!! [​IMG][​IMG]

    I am getting mine on April 18th, from Metzers. I was on a waiting list, and was excited to get the call letting me know they were available. My boys already have names picked out; Columbus, Mayflower, Santa Maria, and John Smith. We will definitely have to share pics.

    I got mine from them last year. I think you will really love them. I do mine. I wish my husband would go along with getting more.

    Me too... Metzers week of 4/16. Shipping 3 or 4 pairs. This will be my first time with Geese. I think I will like the Pilgrims. They will have traveling companions~ 10 WH Ducklings

    I have wanted them for a few years now. Last year by the time I got around to "ordering" a pair it was too late. I didn't realize they were in such demand so had to wait until this Spring. In the mid fall I called Metzers and got on their waiting list.

    Oh yeah! Be sure to post pics of yours here, that will be fun for us to see all the same goslings coming from Metzers roughly around the same time [​IMG]

    I have read so much about them that I am sure I will love them. If I had more space I'd get more than one pair but at least I can get one...

    Oh you are so lucky to get 3-4 pairs. As I said above if I had more space for the animals I would get more geese but I'm happy to be able to have at least this first pair (and look forward to a few more goslings from them in the future)
