Check out our mixed geese. Are you looking for geese to protect and or have as a pet or flock? These are a good choice. They are our Utility French Toulouse line and could also be half Pilgrim and/or Roman. We let our Toulouse free range to protect the flocks, and raise our goslings since they are excellent mothers, however we are not monitoring mating.  They still lay the 25-35 eggs per year and are geese.

Geese are herbivores. Apart from nibbling on an occasional meal worm, their diets consist of fresh grass and other greenery, plus pelleted feed. They are always chatting with us here on the farm. We consider them very friendly for geese. They are alert and make good watchdogs. Ours are very protective of their duck groups. They wont go in at night till all ducks are “in bed”. Many people use geese as guardians of their yard, farm, or homestead. They are a great alternative to a dog. Our geese here on the farm are all Non-GMO!

Another fantastic thing about geese are they are used successfully to control grasses and some leaves, they are great foragers. Geese are excellent weeders and during the early days of commercial agriculture goose farmers would supplement their income by renting flocks out to cotton farms for a chemical-free weeding solution! Think about using them for your grass as a mowing solution, plus their droppings enrich your soil.
When it comes to choosing a breed, pick what you’re most attracted to. On our farm we’ve found that in most cases personality and temperament depend more on the individual bird and its environment than on the breed. To reduce the likelihood of aggressive behavior, we work calmly around geese of all ages and never feed them from the hand after they are a couple weeks of age. You want to build a relationship built on respect. They are social birds, geese are some of the only domesticated fowl that imprint on humans. They will bond with the person who feeds them as a gosling, and remain dedicated to that person as their surrogate “parent” throughout their lives. Also keep in mind if you want them as guardians don’t handle but give respect. They can live up to 20 years!

 

Pre-ordered adults and hatchlings may be picked up by appointment. To safeguard our birds from exposure to disease brought in by visitors, in accordance with the provisions of the National Poultry Improvement Plan, areas where birds are kept are off limits. However you are welcome to look at all the breeds and interactions, it is a site to see.
