    Is there a website that sells geese and ducks at a small quantity at around 3 days of age.

    Metzer farms does have order sizes as small as 2, but you have to pay extra for heat packs and such. Holderreads gosling order size is 4 or more, not sure about their ducklings orders.

    There are no sites that would sell a duckling or gosling more than one day old. After that, they would need food and water to be sent with them, up until they are 3 days old, they can survive without food and water, due to the yolk sack that they absorbed right before hatching [​IMG]

    Holderread is a 4 gosling min and 10 duckling min. But shipping is reasonable and their reputation is outstanding. Mine arrive this week from them.

    I don't know about the rest of the country, but here in NY, you have Ag and Market laws requiring a minimum numbers of chicks, ducks and goslings that must be sold when there are hatchlings. Chickens and ducks are a minimum of six and I believe that goslings are a minimum of four, but, truthfully, I am not sure about geese.
