GEESE

 

2019  Hatch weeks:  April 2, 16, 30;  May 14, 28; June 11, 25.

Geese are rather temperamental layers and will quit once the season turns hot.  Our incubators are not the best for goose eggs, so hatches are subject to availability.  The goose assortments available are as follows:  Super Assorted,  and Fancy Assorted.

 

SUPER ASSORTED:  Goslings - 6 for $60.00; 12 for $110.00.  This assortment can be anything.  It might be one each of six different breeds or two or three each of two or three different breeds.   Caution this can run high in numbers on White Chinese when demand for Fancy geese is high.

 

 

FANCY ASSORTED:  Goslings - 6 for $120.00  This assortment will be from one or more of the following breeds:  American Buff,  Buff Saddleback Pomeranian, Grey Saddleback Pomeranian, Pilgrim, Roman Tufted  SOLD OUT FOR 2019

 

American Buff- Large, gentle, rich buff color. I  am very partial color poultry and these are some of my favorite geese. The males can be rather territorial during breeding season. We have been maintaining this breed since 1992.  Goslings $25.00 each (4) SOLD OUT FOR 2019

 

Buff Saddleback Pomeranian- Large sized, white with buff saddleback patches on the back and head. They are a  colorful breed and as with all Pomeranians it is a challenge to maintain the colors in the proper location. We are constantly working on maintaining the proper color as well as a good size body. We have been maintaining this breed since 1993.  Goslings $30.00 each (4)SOLD OUT FOR 2019

 

Grey Saddleback Pomeranian- Large sized, white with grey saddleback patches on the back and head.  As goslings these are adorable with their color patterns and the intense grey  and white  colors. There is just something elegant looking about a flock of these  roaming on a  pasture.  We maintain several  different lines of these to maintain vigor. We have maintained  a flock of these since 1992. Goslings $30.00 each ( 4)SOLD OUT FOR 2019

 

Old Fashioned Pomeranian - A colorful group of rare old German geese.  They are not all of one color.  (AVAILABLE ONLY IN FANCY ASSORTED GEESE.)

 

Roman Tufted- Small sized, pure white with tufts on their heads.  Very elegant looking. This is an old breed and  they always present themselves  in a sophisticated fashion when wandering around the farm. We have been maintaining this breed since 1990.  ( AVAILABLE IN  FANCY ASSORTMENT ONLY.)

 

White Chinese- Small, very active, noisy,  good breed for foraging.  Ours have long, slender necks. I first saw this  breed on my uncles farm when I was 8. I was fascinated by their unique look and mannerisms. As partial as I am to buff colored  poultry this is beyond a doubt my favorite  breed of goose.  They are easy to train, personable and all around hard workers when it comes to foraging. They lay well and while I have been bitten during breeding season by every other breed of goose I have yet to be bitten by White Chinese. I use the goslings for imprinting studies in my College Biology class  as they bond with people almost immediately.  The goslings are a bright yellow.  We have been maintaining this breed since 1999. Goslings $10.00 each (6)
