    First time with geese, got them in late June. I have five and would like to eat one at Christmas. They seem to have stopped growing so my question is, should I kill it now and freeze it or should I wait and have it fresh. Just wondering if waiting will make it more tough. Also I need to figure out which are males and females so I don't off one that I need for reproduction...but that is another question. Thanks!
