    HI
    What do the geese look like? I heard most hatcheries cross toulouse (or another breed) with the embden. So usually hatchery embdens have black eyes. I like black eyes so I'm fine with it, but what about the body shape? Is it more round and heavy, because I would like them to be a nice slim-ish oval shape? Would you recommend buying from it?

    I have a pair from metzer and I they are nice birds, the goose is broody and laid large eggs. Mine were white with blue eyes. I will say that size is kinda all over the place as two of friends got some last yr with me and while some are truly large some were just med sized.
