    Geese in general are loud. I have American Buffs. They are a more calm and docile goose.. With that being said they can be very loud and make noise all the time.

    I would imagine that they are still noisy. I know very little about mini geese so it is possible.

    Here as in the United States? If so then varieties derived from greylags are available.

    American buffs, pilgrims, Toulouse, Embden, Sebastopol, and Pomeranians are all descended from the greylag goose.
