Lauren, here is some info..originated in Sevastopol, a city on the Black Sea. It takes several years of a proper environment and good feed to develope the feathers. They are hardycompanioable and good parnts. They come in white and buff, possibly gray too. This info is from Holderreads catalog, who I can highly recommend. rob

Min. orderis..4 goslings, or 10 ducklets. In 2002 white sebs were $35 ea. and buff sebs were $50 ea. show quality were $85-$100 as day olds. Sexed pairs were $85-$100 per pair. Shipping for 4 is $8. Start saving your quarters now!

Hi Lauren,

I can vouch for Holderreads too. They are actually just a few hours from here and so we've had the chance to meet them and see their place. Their emphasis is on the preseravation of the various domestic geese and duck strains in the world. In the process, they produce fantastic show birds. I've seen their Sebastapol breeding flock and a number of birds they have shown at various events and they are as good as you will find anywhere. by the way, Dave is the author of The Book of Geese - one of the best geese books on the market and also Storey's Guide to Raising Ducks, formerly The Home Duck Flock. Dave truly has forgotten more about raising geese and waterfowl genetics than most of us will ever know.

As for the nature of the Sebastapols, they are a fairly small, good natured goose. Because of the expanse and loosness of the feathers, they can be a chore to keep in condition. They are more vocal than the larger Graylag line (non-knobbed) geese but not as loud or talkative as the chinese. In the showroom good specimens always attract a lot of attention.
