    I know for a fact my female Toulouse could fly but I clip her wings because I don't want her to end up in the river below our home and get swept down stream. Before I clipped her wing she would take off down the driveway and my heart would go to my stomach I sure don't want to loose her.

    Thanks for showing me pictures but I think I forgot to mention that I know that Toulouse goose can fly but I was wondering more on the Chinese geese because they seem like they can but nont a lot of people show or talk about it!
