    Canadian geese are great. I love all the true wild geese species. Redbreasted are my favorites. But of course they would have to be one of the rarest AND most exspensive unfortunately.

    destinduck I would disagree, not on price but they are easy to find, however you want to talk about rare lets talk about some brent geese! lol sebastopol very nice canada geese, I raise giants and they are one of my favorites.

    You misunderstood. I meant rare in THE WILD. But I guess I should have been clearer on what I meant. [​IMG] Although they are easy to find to buy right now. They are still rare here in America. I only know of a handful of people willing to sell these. Yes Brant's of either kinds are hard to find to buy indeed. Ive kept cacklers and richardsons. ARE sebastopols WILD Geese?I dont think so.

    Destinduck could you tell me a little about the richardsons, what makes them different about regular cacklers?

    We normally have Canada geese visit our property but all are welcome.
