    I have frequently visited this site in the past for all of my questions concerning raising my geese and chickens. Now that I had to join an online connections website for my web fundamentals class, I decided to give BYC a try for myself.
    My flock:
    Right now I have four hens (Americana, white leghorn, silver laced wyandotte, mille fleur deuccle), a male guinea fowl, and a pair of giant dewlap Toulouse geese. This spring I am hoping to raise some goslings. However, If anyone has tried to breed these large dewlaps, they know that it is not an easy task. I have used the help of posts from other dewlap Toulouse owners to help me prepare. Below is a picture of my geese.

    If anyone decides to post any comments below to interact for my web class, just say anything you find interesting about poultry and etc.

    Hello Paul and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Sounds like you have a lovely flock! Good luck with raising your goslings. I have never kept geese but would love to some day.

    If your geese have access to a pond, it will facilitate their breeding.

    Welcome to BYC![​IMG]I'm glad you joined us.

    Sounds like you have a nice flock already! I've always admired Toulouse geese, but don't have the space to keep any waterfowl. I hope you can find a way to breed yours successfully![​IMG]
