    Try looking up Strombergs, they sell Canada's as for info most likely you could find out just about all you'd want by typing in How to care for Canada geese on line.

    I don't think Canadian geese do go as pets.

    Hmm really because e fowl says that their geese are domesticated and if hand raised from goslings they will be tame and friendly

    My thought was that they are such a migratory bird that travels 1000's of miles back and forth between the north and south each season,that i didn't think they would be good as pets.
