I am so excited! After raising chickens and ducks for little over a year, my son and I have managed to convince my husband we should get geese. Due to geese having reputation for being ornery, Dave has been very reluctant. But, after a dog killed all of our ducks this fall, except for one (that’s a whole other story), it was agreed we should give geese a go. I know geese won’t keep dogs, or foxes, out, but they will raise the alarm that predators are around. We are also going to get more ducks.
After a bit of research, I decided to get a small order of “fancy” geese. They will be shipped May 4th. They are being mailed on Star Wars Day, a great sign!
I know I won’t be getting White Chinese, Embden, Toulouse, French Toulouse, African or Canada goslings. I could be getting Sebastopol, American Buff, Roman Tufted, or Tufted Buff Geese. Here are pictures of what are future flock may look like:
I have been trying to find a good book on raising geese, and not having much luck. Does anyone have any suggestions?
