2022 Hatch weeks: April 5, 19; May 3, 17,31; June 14,28.
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. We have decided to be cautious and only do assortments this year as we experiment with new hatching methods. I dearly love geese and want to get the hatch rate up and have more of the elegant birds roaming the farm. The goose assortments available are as follows: UPDATED FOR AVAILABILITY AS OF MAY 30,2022 : The geese started laying about a month late this year and egg production has been down.
SUPER ASSORTED: Goslings - 6 for $70.00; 12 for $130.00. 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. SOLD OUT FOR 2022

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. Only in assortments this year
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. Only in assortments this year
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 $12.00 each (maximum of 6 per hatch) SOLD OUT FOR 2022
