    I hope this hasnt been asked too much, but what are the best broody geese? I know chinese seldom go broody (although mine come from a breeder whose chinese go broody). Embden? Toulouse?

    I know that cotton patch are good broodies and mothers, because they have not been bred for production. A lot of them are still hatched by their mothers, not incubators. [​IMG] I've also heard a lot about American geese going broody..
