    Pomeranian geese were developed from the Eastern Greylag. This is what causes true Pomeranians to have a pinkish hue to their feet and beaks. They originated in the Pomorze region which is in northern Poland. They were originally thought to be brought to North America by German settlers. The Pomeranian is thought to have helped in the development of many modern day breeds as it is quite an ancient breed dating back to around the year 1500.

  • Breed Details:
    Pomeranian geese are a good dual purpose bird that lay around 70 eggs a year and average about 16lbs before processing. They like the chinese goose tend to make good watchdogs and are quite noisy. The Pomeranians temperament varies from goose to goose. Some can be very docile while others can be overly aggressive. A correct specimen will have blue eyes, pinkish-red bill and reddish orange feet and legs. The geese only have one lobe instead of two that most breeds have. There should not be any knobs at the base of its bill as this is a trait of inbreeding. They should not have a dewlap and if one occurs this specimen should be removed from breeding stock. In the U.S. the most commonly occuring color is the grey saddleback. Main image and adult male image courtesy of swheat
