    Hello! i have recently purchased a house where some geese have lived for a while. i think they are 3 embden, 2 embden cross with canadian, and 2 american maybe? the one i think are american have a fluff on top of their head tho and i cant figure out what they are. anyway the geese have all partnered up but there are seven and one is always left out. i call him ben. he is very friendly and he will let you pet him. he even hides behind me when the other geese come over. they are mean to him and bite him and pul his feathers out. it has gotten to the point where his back has patches of skin showing! i would have taken a picture but i forgot my camera. i will post one later. but i dont know what to do to help him! does anybody have any ideas? and does anybody know what breed these geese are?

    Looks like a Tufted Buff or a Cross of a Tufted Buff. Very Pretty Geese.

    Hi

    Looks like a mixture in the group. The whites appear to be Embdens, then there's a Saddleback Pomeranian and finally perhaps American Buff Tufted.

    A very nice group whatever you decide they are [​IMG]
