    No, she is strictly a pet (she has flaws that I dont want to pass on) and I only have the one goose anyhow. But my mallard drake breeds her all the time. If I ever find a fertile one, they will be thrown in the bator for sure!

    How do you tell the goose and ganders apart? As adults and as goslings.

    Mine have never been quiet. They are the loudest geese I have ever known. I have met other people with africans, and theirs were not near as loud as mine, they honk all the time, usually at the canadians that have taken up on my pond.
