We are selling Brown Chinese hatching eggs. As noted these are separately housed so you will get purebreds. Based on last year's laying patterns I believe we will only have about 2 or 3 more weeks of laying for these before the big slow down and nesting takes place

They are priced at $2.00 each + Priority Shipping & Packing Cost of $15 for up to 6 eggs.( These are large eggs and weigh about 3 to 4 times the poundage of eggs. I put .01 in the shipping category so that I can compute the cost if you order more than 6 eggs. or wish to combine this order with our other poultry that is available)

(I can take orders of up to 6 Brown Chinese Geese Eggs at any time for this shipping price. You don't have to order 6 eggs. If available and not a part of another order, I'll include any extras the day of mailing. )

I have confirmed fertility. These are young and very healthy and raised on our chemical free farm.

I have a very small flock of White Chinese geese and can include up to 2 of their eggs per shipment if you'd like them.
Here are pictures of some of the brown chinese flock:

In the past some of you have asked if these will be good mothers, No guarantee but here's one of the mother's of the current flock after she hatched her egg!

When you buy these eggs, the price for the eggs and shipping includes selecting, carefully packing, packing materials, priority shipping and confirmation delivery. If extra(s) are available at the time of shipping, I'll include those as well. We only ship within the continental US.

We ship eggs in the same way we would like to receive them. We bubble wrap each egg separately, putting in a regular box (not an egg carton) which is then cushioned and set in a larger box. These are not the prepaid priority boxes but we use the large boxes that can be ordered through USPS as the standard mailing box. Our mailing costs can often be higher than the prepaid boxes but we find that they arrive in better shape, so it's well worth the extra time, packing materials and shipping costs. Occasionally with a large order, we will use an even larger outside box. Even as carefully as we ship, we cannot guarantee that there will be no breakage in transit. We do not guarantee the percentage of your hatch as the incubators temperature and humidity are very variable. We will provide assistance to you during the hatch and help in every way possible to have the best hatch possible.

We are a chemical free farm and farm full-time. We feed our animals with the best feed, sprouted grains, fresh grasses, treats from the garden and loving care.

Please check out our feedback (please scroll to bottom of pages for our more recent feedback)

We also have feed back in the new system as you'll see above

Rather than close this listing, please just pm me and I'll be glad to work with you for delivery at your best time for incubation.

Thanks and have a blessed day.

I've been considering getting some geese, but I haven't yet decided on a breed yet. Right now I have chickens and ducks. I am interested in a breed that is good around the people they know, meaning myself, my children, and my mother. My childhood experiences with geese have not been good ones. I was chased out of a barn at a zoo once by a big, strange looking goose, and when I was 7 my mother, grandfather and I were at a pond in a cemetery in Indianapolis, and there were geese everywhere. My mother bent over to feed a Pekin duck and well, she got goosed and then chased all the way back to the car. It was both funny and scary at the time, however I don't want a repeat in my own backyard, if you get my drift. I'm leaning more toward Pilgrim geese, but I would like to know more about the Chinese. I know the reputation of geese to be defenders of their property and aggressive toward strangers, etc., but I know that individual breeds have to have different personalities, just like different chicken breeds do. How are they with the people that raised them? Any information you could give me would be great. I might be interested in getting some. Oh, and how are they around chickens? My ducks are around my chickens all the time and are fine with them.

My chinese geese are sweet to me.....I hatched them as babies...... The followed me around the farm as babies....When they hit puberty, I simply acted like a kid being an airplane and I could easily heard them back into place. Even if one runs back after you.....all you do is the airplane trick....A 2 year old visitor can heard the geese.

Ours were raised next to chickens, but not in the same pen as chickens. I think it's all in the "raising" that makes a difference. I'm able to reach in the nest and get the eggs out - no problem.

I really like our geese, they weed the garden, let us know when we have company and if any one or thing looks like a threat,,,,they won't allow it. They have even saved guineas from hawks.....

They are pretty as well.

Just love them....

Please let me know if you have any more questions and thanks for your interest.
