After raising this bird all summer, then eagerly anticipating Christmas dinner and being a slave in the kitchen for hours my goose got No rave reviews. It was not greasy, over cooked or dry. I thought it tasted good, but the four other members of my family thought I should stick with raising chickens for meat. I guess the three remaining geese get promoted to pet and lawnmower status. Don't know what I'm going to do with the 10 goslings that are coming in April. The kids wanted to raise them to show in the fair, but that is a lot of mouths to feed if my family won't eat them.
