    I have geese coming from Holderreads in a few weeks. I ordered an assortment which basically means I have no clue what I am getting. If you have gotten any of these assortments, what did you get? Pics?

    Quote:Which assortment? I'm going to guess the cheap assortment which is what is left after ALL OTHER orders are filled. If you are lucky you can get some really rare geese that no one ordered because they weren't listed and at worst you will get good healthy geese that you can brag about being Holderread stock even if they are common. The price was right.

    Probably did, this same wording has appeared in his catalog for years there was a note at the bottom of the page(on the website) that he thought the toulouse and pomeranian were sold out but was taking names incase they produced more than expected.

    I got a bargain assortment a few weeks back. Got 2 lavender ice americans and 2 blue americans (hoping for pairs??) and my bonus was I think an embden...
    Oh, they do still have some sebs. I almost bought a pair of goslings. They only sell assorted colors which I guess includes white. Have yours arrived yet??????
