What's the best goose for eating.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

My Wife cooks an AMAZING Christmas goose, and I was thinking of raising my own. The problem is that I have 6 kids (16-7 y.o.) and the more they grow, the more they eat. We buy 2 geese for Christmas and there's still no left-overs. Anyone recommend a breeder that sells eggs?  Any help would be appreciated.

toulouse or african or embden or buff..   I cannot vouch for any other kind..

I currently have african, toulouse and some african I bought that I think are crossed with toulouse..

I have eggs coming out of my ears.

how many do you want?

I do not know which eggs are which because all the geese lay in the same nest.. 

PM me if you are interested..

Can I get the recipe? winkbig_smile

Been trying to convince DH to try goose.... but last year my stepdad brought this HORRIBLY cooked wild goose to Thanksgiving dinner and now he has THAT stuck in his head sad

Embdens seem to be a very popular breed for meat. But I don't have any geese yet, so I really couldn't say for sure.

Well, I think it's easier to say now that "Hi, my name is Angie and I am a chick-a-holic!"

and I heard that ludafisk was delicious..   some things just ain't like you heard..

Goose cooked properly is great. and not greasy..

You have to roast it raised off the bottom of the pan so it is not stewing in its own fat..
