    Eygptians are more aggressive than domestic geese. They like to bully other geese or ducks. They are very territorial during breeding and defend the nest very well. They are great parents.THey start breeding at 2 yr old.

    The white gene is sex linked (when 2 colored birds that carry the white gene produce a white offspring it will be a female). Which makes White males hard to find.

    Even though more aggressive than other geese- they are beautiful and I enjoy raising them. We have a few breeding pairs and several pairs of yearlings.

    I had a pair of white Egyptian geese and they killed one of my Sebastopol hens last fall and then went after a call duck. We kept them in a separate pen but they got out during a wind storm. They have also been known to attach young children. I do think they are beautiful and I loved having them, but it just wasn't worth the risk.

    those are Beautiful! I have never seen them before. Too bad they are so mean. I had white embedens and Troulous geese last year and once they got mature they were very aggressive towards strangers and my son who was two yrs old at the time. Because of my son I have to find some that are not aggressive If I want to raise any, but thanks for showing those beauties off.

    I have one gander. I bought him for $25.He does bully the other geese and I plan on building him his own pen. We have named him Crash because his honk sounds like something crashing. Do you sale any eggs from your geese?
