About Sebastopols

The breed that changed my mind about geese forever. If you've never considered geese before, let me introduce you to Sebastopols. Classified as a "threatened" breed by the Livestock Conservancy with less than 1000 breeding individuals in the United States, their docile personalities and long curls set them apart from all breeds of geese. 

Young goslings have a strong instinct to bond or imprint with their caregivers and can learn to enjoy handling. All geese are individuals with different personalities, but many are confident and curious and typically continue to enjoy interacting with us as adults. During their breeding season (February-May in our latitude), they should be given a dedicated space and respect while their instincts to protect their mates, nest, and goslings are strong. While protective instincts are normal, we don't continue breeding from birds that show excessive aggression, even during breeding season. Outside of the breeding season, flocks of multiple males and females can be housed peacefully together. Sebastopols are one of our favorite birds to raise! (For additional information, see 6 Uses for Geese on the Homestead)

Our Flock and Breeding

Retaining the trademarks of Sebastopols- correct breed type, feather quality, and docile personality- are our priorities here when breeding Sebastopols. We've worked hard to bring in birds over the years from Michigan, Kentucky, and New Jersey to establish a quality breeding flock. All members of our flock are non-color carrying whites to produce as many potential exhibition candidates as possible. We are an NPIP/AI clean flock (NC Flock #55-1701). 

Gosling and Hatching Eggs:
Goslings are for on farm pickup only. We do not ship eggs or goslings.

 

Sebastopol hatching eggs can have such variability in fertility and hatchability, that we do not offer eggs for sale. We attempt to hatch every egg we receive in a season.

 

Minimum reservation for goslings is two and they are sold unsexed.  We do our best, however, to make an educated guess and not send someone home with all males. We will not sell single goslings except in rare circumstances. We will hold onto goslings in most cases until they are a week old and eating and drinking well on their own before releasing them to a new home.

NOTE: The waiting list for 2024 is FULL.

We do NOT ship goslings.
