I love my Africans. They are friendly and lovable and great weeders! . They have free run of my garden in the Spring and Summer. They definitely have personality. They are pretty laid back and get along with my ducks and Guineas and peafowl. However, they will be defensive of their turf to strangers. They work as a secondary alarm system to my Guineas. The Guineas will alarm at everything but the geese tend to only alarm at things they don't recognize (animal or human). They've definitely helped to save themselves several times from rogue hunting dogs and foxes. I know there different sounds well which is a plus. Some people consider them to be loud but as long as you don't live in some type of development and you have some space between you and your neighbor it should be fine. Did I mention that they are beautiful as well?

Not owned them personally, but I love the looks of the Sebastopol geese!

Of my geese, my favorite I think is the Pomeranian. Very even tempered, quiet, and beautiful to look at!

Can't go wrong with any of the breeds in my opinion though. As long as you know what to expect, it's always rewarding!

The favorite geese is the geese you have.

French Toulouse are the majority of my flock and I just adore them, but I also adore my Buff sweetie, and I just got my first classic Roman and I adore her too.

Group 2:
Darby “American Buff x French Toulouse cross” 5 year old gander

Leo is the big boy right after Apricot’s picture.
Parsnip is between Delphi and Apricot.

Oh my gosh me too. I can still see when my Muscovy hatched my gander. I was beside myself. His mate was 4 months old when I brought her home. She will be 8 in April. Sam spent the first 5 yrs of his life thinking he was a giant Muscovy duck. Then I brought home Missy.
