    Hello,
    I'm from NE Ohio and I've been raising geese as a hobby for about 6 years. I currently have Pilgrims, Sebastopols, and Shetlands. I love all of them (that's the main problem!), but
    breeding season is hard for me, and the next one will be here before I know it. I'm considering re-homing some, or all, of the Pilgrims. My Pilgrims get very active during breeding season and seem to take turns flying over the fence a lot. I had an expensive 5' fence installed, yet they fly over it regularly. I don't have the heart to butcher any of my geese, and I would prefer to see them go to someone who would just let them free-range on a farm. I want each of them to be with at least one other goose. At this point, I don't want to give them away free, but all reasonable offers will be considered, even low offers, just to help cover some of my feed expenses. I have 4 females and 3 males available. Two are the parents (hatched 2010) of the other five (hatched 2011/2012). They are nice geese who are not agressive, except during breeding season. Any advice or interest?

    [​IMG] Have you tried posting on the "where am I where are you" thread look up your state and post there, and also the Buy sale trade thread on here and we also have a rehoming thread but everything has to be free on that one, I hope you can find some great homes for your pilgrims I love the breed just don't have room for more geese and also live to far away which is another good reason to post on your states thread. All the best.
