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 a lot of geese. My goal is for geese to be everywhere. There are a few who can make the perfect guard goose. But most of them would be better as pets, weeders, and lords over all the other birds.
