    Are they better than just Toulouse?

    I love them all, and have raised most of them. I really like pilgrims to, but the Dewlap Toulouse are the calmest and the most entertaining geese I have been around. They act more like a dog than a goose some of the time.

    BA052D7B-6700-4A8E-9A7F-423379C6CA4E.jpeg I have a pair of Cotton Patch. Based on their actions & personality right now, I’d recommend EVERYONE have a pair of geese. They’re not quite 2 weeks old.

    I don't know why but among all goose breeds my favorite is Sebastopol geese. They made me fell in love with geese.

    Another vote for dewlap toulouse. It is a great breed to introduce strangers to geese, as they are very calm and non-threatening in appearance.
