I feel silly starting a thread for this, but I promised my artist friend I'd ask. Shes bought a place with land, and a 2 acre fenced yard. She loves to work with goose eggs, and likes to do cut out patterns and then enamel and paint them....really lovely. Now she wants geese for eggs, and has no other preference. Not to eat, just to look at and lay eggs for her art. Any suggestions my goose oriented fellow avarians?? She did not express any concern about friendliness or noise, but I warned her. Told her sebastopol (sp?) maybe friendliest, and the bigger the goose, the bigger the egg, but you know how artists are. Can she mix multiple geese breeds without problems (other than cross breeding?) Thanks so much!
