    Does anyone have any?? I've heard they are friendly (but pricey) and I really like geese, plus the funky feathers really appeal to me. Just wanted to know if they are as nice as everyone says.

    We had a pair of white Chinese Weeders but when they matured they got nasty mean. It was like night and day because when they where gosling's and juveniles they'd sit on my lap and eat food out of my hand and the nest thing I know I'm being chased in my own backyard!

    I have sebs and the only time mine have been aggressive has been during breeding season. Then the males get a bit testy if you get too close to the nests and females. The females will hiss and bite if you try to reach into the nest under them, lol.
    Silly me!

    I just got some Giant Dewlap Toulous and they are pretty calm and quiet.
