    There's a few hatcheries that sell buff Pomeranians, but I want those spots! Small spots.

    Never saw any Buff saddleback Pomeranians here in Ireland.
    There are no buff type geese in Ireland in general.
    So seeing buff Americans any Buff geese are a amazing sight!
    With the amount of cross breeding I did I never cross bred buff types so you can be the first [​IMG]

    Well you got those Buff Chinese!
    It would be could to have a buff spotted goose and a gray spotted goose. Not saddleback but spotted

    Eating goose here is so popular along with duck.
    I didn't like selling my flock last year because I knew that people would use them for the table but I had to sell.
    I knew every goose personality(if they were aggressive /territorial etc.)out of the flock I had so it was hard.
    I used to sell the babies my flock made for meat and egg laying because I could only handle 100 geese no more ;)
    Did you ever eat goose!

    Yes I would be able but I had to sell the because I am starting to breed African geese since they are rare here especially the buff kind.
    But I'm actually considering on starting the buff Chinese breeding program.
    I probably won't get over 100 geese again, I'm planning on atleast 20 pairs of African geese ;)

    I think you should start buff Chinese! Maybe just a small sample flock, people would love them

    I'm continuing with the Africans and try and find about 3 white female Chinese to get different bloodlines for the experiment.
    I only need the buff African males to develop the breed anyway ;)
    So my flock size might be eventually between 60-70 geese

    Is there such a breed as buff Chinese? or is this a breed you want to try for? @servpolice

    Sounds very interesting..

    Oh and by the way today when all 4 geese were in the pool Sam was making some suggestive overtures to Toots, she got out of the pool both times, Kind of like a slap in the face. lol
