nice looking birds, been very tempted to get geese recently, not sure my suburban backyard would be the best though - well it wouldn't worry me, but not sure about the neighbours :biggrin:

its great to see someone getting into this breed,not a easy one to handle but chookster is more than capable.

there was also a man in dubbo who use to show them who has gone out od breeding them now.do good to see someone go into them.

Oops late to my own party :mrgreen:

They were advertised on here just recently I had to be quick!

I had been looking for sebastapols a fair while. I have one gander already I have had a few years from a good line. He came as a pair but bloody foxes at my old place left him single. I just could not find a single female since. But a pair is good. If they manage to hatch goslings this year I might have a mate for my gander. But being single so long he has come to rather fancy a certain muscovy duck which is a worry :roll:

I would love to show sebs at sydney eventually.

Possibly. I am still looking for more pairs. I will see how good their feather quality is after they finish moult. If this pair is bonded I will leave them together. I need a goose with very good curls to introduce to my gander.

Good to see you finally got some more Sebastopols Sarah - I have about 4 different blood lines here now, so next breeding season I am hoping for some stunners. Cant beat baby SEBS, they are the cutest especially when hand reared.

I saw my gander mating a muscovy duck today..... :shock: She wasn't complaining either lol. This could be a problem, he is quite in love with her. I was still looking for a goose for him, but he wants the duck!

I got myself a seb female today * bounces around*

she is apprently extremely happy with the indian runner drake she came with too Chookster,

realistically if they have mates I think they will get over their obsessions!
