    Long time no see peeps just been really busy and wanted to ask some of you geese experts if ya know what breed of geese this is. I was watching some videos on liveleak.com and came upon this cute video of a goose doing a lil tap dance when being fed im really interested in knowing what kind of breed it could be. thanks for any info on it. God bless ya![​IMG]

    Im guessing it might be a cross breed of some sort perhaps wild geese bred with a more domesticated breed.

    heres the video link if ya want to watch.

    Bar-headed geese....a wild species in Asia....known for migrating over the Himalayan Mountains between breeding and wintering sites. Hit hard by HPAI H5N1, often used in research on avian respiration because of their respiration efficiency at high altitudes.
