    My African geese are true Africans. All the Africans you can order from a hatchery are not actually African geese, they are slightly heavier Brown Chinese. African geese are a very chubby breed!
    The discoloration on his knob is due to the cold.

    I am not sure of any specific bloodline, but I will take a shot into the dark and assume Holderread.. Most winning Africans are of that lineage. Holderread's birds aren't this good, but other individuals who have bred out of their stock are producing winning results.

    Where are you located? I like the bird just to the left of the big gander in the center of your avatar. Would you consider selling?
