Buy Sebastopol goose

Buy Sebastopol goose are probably our most unique appearing goose. You would think that a bird such as this would have been bred fairly recently but actually they have been around for hundreds of years. Their origin is thought to be from the countries surrounding the Black Sea, Hungary and the Balkans.

They were known early on in England as Danubian and the Spanish and Italians referred to the breed as Danubio due to importations from the lower Danube river area. How they got the name Sebastopol is a mystery other than some of the first birds may have been imported from the port of Sebastopol.

The sebastopol geese for sale is a breed of domestic goose, descended from the European Greylag goose. First exhibited in England in 1860 under the name ‘Sebastopol goose’; they were also referred to as Danubian geese; a name first used for the breed in Ireland in 1863.

Sebastopol Geese are one of our most unusual and beautiful breeds of waterfowl. The Sebastopol has frizzled or spiraled white feathers — long curly white feathers on the back and front which nearly touch the ground and smooth neck feathers. Thought to originate in southeastern Europe, these geese cannot fly, are very gentle, make nice pets, lay eggs fairly well, and will reach a size of 10-14 pounds.

Hatching Preparation

sebastopol geese for sale

Before incubation, I make sure that all of my incubation equiptment is properly disinfected. I use a solution of water and Brinsea Incubation Disinfectant to disinfect my equiptment. I put the solution into a spray bottle and mist down my incubator, thermometers, the slats that hold the eggs, and my new sponge for humidity. I also dip the eggs in the disinfectant before I put them into the incubator.

Temperature
When hatching goose eggs the temperature needs be at 37.4-37.6 degrees celsius. HumidityThe humidity should be 50-55% during days 1-26. On day 27 when the eggs are 3 days away from hatching the humidity needs to be around 75%. A hint to keep the humidty up for hatching is to take a brand new clean sponge and soak it with warm-hot water, then put that in the incubator. The sponge keeps the humidity high.TurningThe goose eggs need to be turned and odd number of times a day from day 1 to day 26. On day 27 of incubation you must stop turning the eggs. The goslings are moving around in the egg getting in the position to hatch. Rotating the egg during this time will confuse the gosling.Misting and cooling the egg

Starting on day 4 and ending on day 26 you must take the top off the incubator and let the egg cool for 10 miniutes. Sometime during that cool down the egg must be sprayed with warm water.

Hatching

Around day 28-30 when the gosling begins to hatch you must not open the incubator. Opening the incubator lets out the humidity and the gosling can become stuck in the shell. Let the gosling stay in the incubator for 24 hours until it fluffs up before moving it to the brooder.
