Emden question?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

First time with geese, got them in late June.  I have five and would like to eat one at Christmas.  They seem to have stopped growing so my question is, should I kill it now and freeze it or should I wait and have it fresh.  Just wondering if waiting will make it more tough.  Also I need to figure out which are males and females so I don't off one that I need for reproduction...but that is another question.  Thanks!
