    Pilgrim ganders are all white but the females have some color on them. They're sex linked and probably medium size.
    Embdens are all white but thery're huge.
    There's white Chinese geese but some can be quite noisy and/or aggressive.
    Cotten Patch ganders are all white, small and mild tempered.
    Heres an article on Cotton Patch Geese.

    Yes its real...a fluffy Sebastopol goose...but they don't look like Pekins so I didn't recommend them.
    You can see more pics of them on my website.

    Yes i saw your website they are soo beautiful and majestic looking!

    I have been thinking on maybe what goose to get but i think i have made my decision, i think i should get a sebastapol Geese!

    Does anyone know where I can maybe buy some? I know you happen to sell some but you dont happen to have any right now right cottage rose?
    Do you sell fertile eggs, or does anyone know who sells fertile eggs of sebastapol geese?

    I would appreciate anymore information( how is it that they made a geese produce such feathers?) you can give me on these cute geese, becaue i have done my research already but its always great to get info from the pros!
    thanks again!

    You can read my sales page for details on what I sell.
    I'm not sure how Sebastopols came about.
    Just a unique mutation... sort of like Frizzle chickens.
