    I am planning on getting a pair of geese to help keep an eye on my mixed flock of ducks and chickens. I currently have an American Buff, or Buff Pilgrim, not sure which. We love our goosey, but he's pretty timid for a goose and not super bright. My question is: what breed of goose would you recommend for a good mix of intelligence and sentry?
