    We are thinking of adding Roman's. For anybody that has them what do you think of them?

    I have one Tufted Roman and hopefully making a road trip to get a couple more in the very near future. I love my one girl that I have. She's super sweet! Even sweeter than my Sebbies.

    I have 8 roman tufted geese. All of my females are super sweet and super layers and sitters. All three of my roman ganders are mean, including the two I have raised since they hatched. If I just had Romans I would assume all ganders are mean but I have a Toulouse gander and he has never offered to be mean to anyone. I enjoy all of my geese, even the ganders, so of course I would recommend the Romans [​IMG]

    I have 3 sitting on eggs right now. I have 4 breeds of geese and all of mine pretty well ignore you. But when someone is sitting all bets are off. And of course they are sitting in 3 different locations and I have ducks sitting in 2 other places. It's dangerous in my yard. [​IMG]

    I have one plain headed roman gander. He's a hoot. He'll run from someone walking through the yard, but try to attack a tractor. He's more hiss than bite and I wouldn't trade him for any other gander.

    I have 6 plain headed Roman geese. 1 gander and 4 females are good natured, but the dominant gander turned into a booger when he matured. I figure he's just doing his job and I'll have to fence a goose pasture next year anyways since all that goose crap on the porch just isn't working for me.
