Hi All,
We live in the south east of Queensland, Australia on a 100acre farm. Our family (husband, 2 kids and my mother in-law) purchased our first sebastopols 3 years ago 3 males and 3 females, we now have 2 of each *** thanks to a fox and we just sold a gander. The flock has been unsucessful in producing any young but I'm keen to learn more to improve our breeding success.
As well as the geese, we have cattle, horses, chooks, dogs and a few native avery birds.

Thanks for adding me,
Katie

Hi Katie and welcome to the Forum! There are a few other members from Oz on here so you are not alone but great to have you along.

There is masses of info on this Forum, and I'd say all of it is accurate and extremely informative, you have to spend a quiet evening or two sifting through some of the different topics to find what you want. The hatching guide is absolutely amazing, second to none and without it I'm sure many of us would never have succeeded in hatching the lovely goslings that we have.

And of course many of us exchange chatter on a daily basis about every topic you can think of it, so do please feel free to join in whenever you like - you are very welcome.

Sorry to hear that your Sebbies have not bred. Have they sat on the eggs themselves or have you ever tried taking them off and incubating them yourself? That might be a better option for the future if you want to increase your flock. If you have any pictures to post that would be great, we always enjoy seeing pics of our friends' geese. Hope to hear more from you soon. -> :2chiks

Hi All,

Thanks for the welcome.
We have had 4 clutches of rotten eggs in the past two years. My mother in law bred Chinese geese years ago, and no problems breeding naturally with natural incubation, and were expecting the same with these. These were purchased from a large flock and were expecting possibly our issues with age or inbreeding but I'm sifting through the info and trying to find answers.

I'll get some photos up soon.
Thanks again
Katie -> : flowers -> :thanks
