    I am strongly considering adding geese to our hobby farm. I would love to get Pilgrims but am also interested in Pomeranians. Could someone compare the two for me? Or just comment on either breed? TIA! [​IMG]

    I don't know anything about Pilgrims, so can't compare.

    My Pomeranian goose is polite and quiet. She's on a nest right now and being a very attentive mother. So far, so good.

    If you have any interest in roast goose, the Pomeranian is the table goose of choice for all of Europe and has been for hundreds of years.

    Pomeranians are more horizontal in posture, stouter in structure, the only singe lobed goose. The "blue" eyes are relative. They are actually a grayish color.

    I like the crisp markings and the unique look of the Pomeranians. Even without the color, they are distinctive enough so nobody ever has to guess what breed they are.
