Eye colors can vary from goose to goose. I believe the lighter brown eyes come from chinese geese. I am not breeding for a specific eye color. Some geese can even have eyes that appear wide - this adds to cuteness and I do not intend to switch out any that have this trait. The picture of Pecan shows his wide-appearing eyes.
My desired traits (I did not mention it all):
- No dewlap
- Big, not as big as an African goose
- Friendly personality
- Decent layers
- Nice feathers
- Bright orange feet
- A black beak with a bit of white behind the knob
Next post I will introduce my favorite gander - Redbud.
my name is Emily
I have twenty-eight geese. I hatch a bunch of goslings because I want a lot of people to have geese. I do not see them everywhere but I want to! The goslings are the sweetest baby birds I know! The adult males are proud and can be cranky but have their sweet moments while the females are shy and sweet all at the same time.
