if they are endangered species or native and migratory, you require all kibds of extensive permits to be allowed to have them in Canada. not worth the hassle for most folks.

Egyptian geese lay eggs in January and eggs would freeze before collected here.

There are many breeders of Egyptians around if you get looking .. I had them for several years .. nice but mean towards others ... as Barronfrew mentioned... cacklers and I think barnicles need federal permits... shelducks depending on the species.. are around .... but not many sell eggs or duckling/goslngs. I would suggest going to the pheasant sale in the fall in Woodstock .. most of what you are looking for are at that sale.

There's a fellow in Brighton, and another in Jasper who have Egyptians, and probably a few of the others on your list.
