AMERICAN GRAY GEESE AND WHITE CHINESE GEESE
Our American Gray Geese are large, calm birds. They patrol the barnyard and will gang up to run off large predators, protecting your poultry against hawks, owls, cats, foxes, coyotes and your neighbor's dog. They are excellent weeders and mowers, cropping grass evenly and fertilizing as they go. Great for pastures and fruit orchards. This breed is very calm and quiet around people.
White Chinese Geese are the classic white barnyard goose. They are great watchdogs (most people are scared of them!) and lay LOTS of eggs. They eat grass and weeds. They have a louder voice than the Grey Goose, and are more vocal and aggressive to predators and strangers. Great to add some to your duck flock for protection!
Price: Goslings for $10 each
