I started raising Embden and production Toulouse and just love them - Both have been friendly and very easy to care for - I will be processing the ones that will not be kept for breeding stock this weekend - Can't wait to have roost Goose.

I got Embden and Toulouse as well. Also have the pekins which we will be doing shortly with the BB turkeys. The geese i will winter so they can breed and then next year cull.

What age do you harvest geese? And how difficult is it to over winter them? I live in northern Wi.

I prefer the Pomeranians for meat.

Embdens are what are raised commercially, because of the white feathers, and probably better feed conversion.
