Utility French Toulouse Geese

Check out our French Toulouse Line. Are you looking for geese to protect, have as a pet or just part of an existing flock? These are a good choice. They are our Utility French Toulouse line and are integrated with some of our Roman Geese. We let our Toulouse free range to protect the flocks, use as farm helpers and raise our goslings since they are excellent mothers and fathers. When collecting and hatching they can be pure French Toulouse, or a blend of French Toulouse/Roman. We love these geese just as much as the others. They are our farm workers and are utilized for all of their great qualities.

About Geese

Geese are herbivores. Apart from nibbling on an occasional meal worm, their diets consist of fresh grass and greenery with a balanced feed. Geese tend to have clicks and groups they would rather be with. Some like to partner up in the groups and some like to venture off and watch and mother over a group of ducks. Geese are alert and make good watchdogs, ganders being better watchers then their female counterparts. Geese are typically the last ones in at night making sure all are put away. Many people use geese as guardians of their yard, farm, or homestead. Geese can be a great alternative guardian that you might not have thought of. However, keep in mind geese can be susceptible to predation of the larger predators.

More cool things about geese are they are used successfully to control grasses and 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, we have 2 types and are really about the same in temperament, care, and size. 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. Geese are social birds; and 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. Hatching eggs are difficult, and hatch rates are low the first years of their lives. They can live up to 20 years!

Feed Recommendations: we recommend starting baby waterfowl out with Sugar Feather Farm chick and waterfowl starter for the first 3 weeks, then switch to our Waterfowl Grower. Use the Grower Feed until they hit maturation (which is when they start to lay) then switch to Sugar Feather Farm Adult Feed

We highly recommend using the Oil of Oregano in their water daily as a supplement to aid with digestion and overall health.
