“I must say when I first saw these geese in person I instantly fell in love with them they were so beautiful and let me just say intimidating! They weren't even being mean they were just so large and loud! My two goslings (9 months old)are just so protective of me and the rest of the flock they bite everyone and everything! They get an attitude with me sometimes but aren't brave enough yet to...” --poult

“ These birds are lovely. If you train them up well, they'll be your friend for life, and if not, they will refuse to fly or even boink if you clip them. They need quite exact conditions to get them to lay, but put them in a quiet spot with plenty of cover, and you will be rewarded with plenty of eggs, or even chicks. No matter what anyone tells you, they will not die if not kept...” --TehLizardKing

“ My pair of American Buffs are great.  They are characters.  I did not try to imprint them because I wanted them to have a fear of people.  They did not follow me when they were goslings, but now they want me out with them all of the time.  With a large pasture they have all the grass they could want and yet they still want me around.  If we let them out of the pasture...” --flockman

“ I've had Anconas for over a year now, after admiring them for awhile before then. I LOVE them. My two hens are fantastic egg-layers. Since they started laying early this spring, they hardly ever miss a day (except for my hen who went broody - she took a few weeks off during incubation, and then about 1-1/2 weeks after they hatched she is back at it!). They are also quite calm and friendly,...” --wordgirl

“I have 11 at the moment and they are so cool and have such pretty colors!   They don't love holding still for pics.   They are very sweet pigeons and if you spend time with them they become really tame.                     ” --lightchick

“We got 12 of these buggers from Cackle in 2012 as poults, and I raised 2 to adulthood. They are now pets as much as my dog! My hen is an EXCELLENT egg layer! In the early spring, she will lay an egg every day, then as the summer comes on, she lays every other day. Right now (its almost October) she's giving me an egg every day and a half to two days. Their eggs are delicious, too! I...” --Haida
