This year, I started with some ducks (Kaki Campbells and Rouens) to raise for eggs and meat. I also got some Canada geese to let roam free around the pond and yard. Everything is going well but this past week while Christmas shoping, I priced a goose for Christmas dinner at Krogers. $54. Wow. So I bought a turkey for $8 at Walmart. Now I'm thinking of raising geese for meat. I've been reading threads about the best, but haven't narrowed my choices. Pilgrim sound good because I can sex them easy. Any ideas about what a good goose is for meat? Space is not a problem. I also haven't found how long it takes geese to lay eggs and how long before they can have goslings. I found my Canada geese are about two years! is that the same for all geese? I hope this doesn't sound like a repeat of other threads, but I've got questions and don't want to hijack someone's thread.
