Hello everyone, I have decided to wait until summer to do the fly cage for the Mandarins which I will eventually get but I still want waterfowl. I looked into geese and the American Buff is the one that I like the most. I've done Google searches with not much luck and I know that here at Daves I could probably get some guidance to be able to find a place that sells them. Any help will be appreciated.
Thank you and Happy Holidays!!!

eggs on e-bay but not time yet. Some geese start laying late winter but most in spring to summer. I will e-mail you some links as I don't know if it is allowed to post it here.

Thank you very much Donna. In order to do eggs I would have to get an incubator. Hmmm maybe that will be my early birthday (in February) present. I remember back home my dad made his own incubator and we had Leghorn and Boiler chicks. I have never hatched duck or geese eggs on an incubator.

Have you looked into a rescue org? We have a waterfowl rescue nearby and I was able to get both ducks and geese for a donation. They also have other 'fowl' including swans, chickens, and turkeys.
