    That's my question. Where do you get your geese?
    And also post your favorite breed, I need opinions. :]

    I ordered a sexed pair of Toulouse goslings from Ideal. I ordered my sexed Cayuga ducklings from Metzer Farms. If I want more geese, I might order from either location, as both hatcheries pleased me. If I go for Sebastepol geese, I will order through Metzer Farms, though.

    I love my Toulouse!

    I traded a Emden goose egg for 3 muscovy eggs to a breeder close to us. My Muscovy brooded him.

    Holderreads is the best anywhere. Order their gosling assortment and see what you like.

    6 of the 7 geese I have were given to me by people looking for better homes for their birds. I picked one up at a swap meet. I have Ebden and African. Love them.

    My local Farm supply got mine through Metzer's
    the birds were so fresh they still had the egg shape to them.
