    Hey, I have a small hobby farm and I was wondering what the best breed of goose for hatching goslings was? My Africans don't seem to go broody but I hoped someone knew what the best breed of goose that would have luck hatching and raising gosling was. Thanks![​IMG]

    I have heard that Canada geese are the best. Chinese and African are not as good as others. My American buffs do a great job. Production Toulouse and pilgrims are good.
