I've never raised geese, (just ducks/chickens/turkeys) but would like get some for a pasture/orchard situation. I live on one acre, and plan on putting in some fruit trees and overseeding the sparse pasture in the back. I want a more docile goose, thus the choice between the Buff and Pilgrim. I've heard Pilgrim CAN be aggressive, but they lay better than Buffs. I think both are about equal in weeding?

Recommendations from you goose owners?

Thanks!

I vote buff as well. My pilgrims are more aggressive toward other birds, and my dogs. I personally wouldn't get them again.
