    Hey Lobo,

    how do you keep your Kelp geese, do you breed with them, what do they eat,

    i would like to have more info about these geese in captivity, because i read they are not easy to keep alive?

    Smews are my favorite! We had most of those species at the aviary, but I've never seen/heard of a kelp goose before. Really pretty bird.

    Beautiful selection of birds. This is the first time I have seen a picture of a cape-barren goose.

    The male Kelp goose is beautiful. The whole body is snow white.
    Do you have a pic of your male goose - Lobo

    Oh they are all so beautiful! I adore Smews, but I don't think I'd ever be able to afford them... [​IMG]
