    I already have ducks and they breed and hatch wonderfully. Well, my grandfather has requested a pair of geese. I'm slightly open to the idea because i'm sure i can sell what ever they hatch. However, I'm only 5'3 and KNOW a large goose can kick my butt. Are there small gentle breeds of geese? Will a male goose hurt my drakes?

    I have been considering Pilgrim geese. Small, docile, and color linked gender!

    I've looked at those too, I'm probably gonna try and get them. I'd like some personal experience with them though, cause i really don't want anything that can beat me up.

    Yeah, really! I am 5'10" and scared to death of all the mean Canada geese around here.
