    Has anyone ordered these? Show them? I am interested in getting some and having them around as they are small, and great parents. Any thoughts?

    Thanks!

    Ours are from Murray McMurray ,I wanted smaller geese and these are fine, sweet(except not to the chickens-keep separate),good watch birds without any noise unless someone drives up the driveway they will let me know. Don't know about parents as they are still young-born in late May. Pretty and hardy. Hope that helps.

    Awesome! I am guessing that McMurrays are bigger than the show ones that Holderreads has... McMurray is a production hatchery not a show hatchery.

    I have always admired those, and they are a vanishing breed. I don't feel I can have another goose breed, though. Holderreads is a reputable breeder. I vote you should get some! [​IMG]
