    OK, MLyd, yes isn´t the Tula a strange-looking goose! And there are others....so there´s the Tse Tau for you to look up, and the Shi Tou. [​IMG] OK. They reckon the Tula my have been used to produce some of today´s breeds nin eastern europe into Asia, and other similar-looking geese too. As far as I can tell, many of them were developed around the year 1900ish.

    I was just reading that what´s own today as the African probably was the Lion Head or Shi Tou in the 1850s, exported to the US from China. It´s very interesting reading.

    [​IMG] It does, doesn´t it! And I´ve just found another breed to look up, called Diepholz which, apparently, if you cross it with an asiatic goose, can also produce something similar to the steinbacher.....Mmmm I´m getting itchy to play with breeds, now! [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Just don´t say the name if you don´t want to spray someone! I´m getting this info out of a very interesting book I have here. I read it over and over to try to understand things.

    Yes, so geese like these from Europe...also the czech goose, pomeranian, probably were crossed with asiatic geese to produce some of the stunning breeds like the steinbacher.
    Those other two chinese named geese are probably the original Africans, apparently. Did you find 'Lion Head'?
