Roman Tufted

    Large Fowl
    It is rumored that in 365 B.C. when the Gauls attempted to break in and attack Rome during the night, it was the Roman Goose (not Roman Tufted) that sounded the waking alarm that eventually saved the city. That breed is very rare in north america and more common in europe, the Roman Tufted Goose (RTG) is common in North America. Roman Tufted Goose also called White Roman Tufted Goose is sometimes considered an ornimental breed. It's development was most likey in the Danube River Valley (its a river that originates in the Black Forest in Germany,the Danube flows southeastward for a distance of some 1771 miles, passing through four Central and Eastern European capitals, before emptying into the Black Sea.)

  • Breed Details:
    I've read alot about Roman Tufted Geese (RTG) and I have some of my own. Roman Tufted Geese are a very good weed & bug controling bird, they are very easy keeping geese. They are very talkative when excited and their blue eyes and tuft make them a fascinating waterfowl. Their actions will make you luagh, and from my experience they love being held if you have a good connection with them, they are easy to connect with. It resembles a small Embden goose except for the tuft of feathers on its head. Both males and females look alike, although males may be slightly larger.
