    [​IMG] My Toulouse goose flew down the drive way earlier in the fall and
    I clipped her one wing because we have a fast running mt. river down below us and I didn't want her to get lost on it, My Embden gander probably couldn''t fly if he wanted to.

    They´re beautiful geese. But really embdens? They took off from the water? Wow! They must be on diets! [​IMG] Whereabouts is this, and what about the pieds in the pic? Are they geese gone feral on a lake? gorgeous.

    That is a beautiful pic, but I can tell you my gander could not do that and he isn't over weight. Maybe from behind our home up on the bank where he could get lift, but naw I don't think so. I'd like to know where that is too, such a pretty place.

    the pied geese are embden x toulouse and this was taken when i went to go see my cousin's in wyoming [​IMG]
     
  7. They look like some of the wild geese i used to see when i lived in Colorado, We used to visit my in laws in the northwest part of texas and 1000s of geese like that and ducks would fly in to the huge lake near their house. I wasnt in to waterfowl then so i never bothered to ask anyone what kind they were, i do have pics of them ill have to retrieve them from my computer.

    I saw a quick video-clip on the internet, can´t remember where, of someone filming a flock of geese and then they took off......the commentator said about how alarming that must have been...I just would have loved to have been there to see it for real! [​IMG]

    I´m curious about those geese. As most embdens can´t fly (being big meaty birds), nor toulouse in general (like the big embdens, except for the ones that just look like greylags), do you suppose they´re birds that are no longer bred for meat, but have been left to get on with things, and they´re slowly reverting back to slim-line geese that can fly? Just wondering, because these are really flying, not just skirting.

    I was thinking the same thing, not being feed as good as we feed ours would make a slimmer goose and most likely would enable them to fly, in Dave Holdreads book of geese i beleive he talks about seeing Embdens flying. my Sam no way [​IMG] for one thing he's way to lazy.
