Not sure if its the right area to post this topic, but here i go. We always wanted to eat a goose for x-mas or thanksgiving, but a regular raised one is 35$ and up and dont get me started on the free range raised prices. Since we going to have a by flock anyways i thought about raising one or two for slaughering purposes. But from what i remember they are kind of noisy. Here is where oyur expertice(sp?)comes in. Is there a kind of goose and/or turkey that is less noisy? What would have i to do to keep them quiet. Is is depending on the sex? I would raise from egg or day old chick.
