I have been raising Gray African/Chinese geese for two years now and I have heard about the white geese. People often have them alongside a gray goose in pairs. I had been speculating on changing to Roman geese until I found out that they are very likely to have defects but white Chinese geese would make up for that. I believe they are supposed to have blue eyes like all the other white geese but I am not sure. White Chinese geese are supposed to have a colorless gene instead of a white gene. Making everything regarding breeding totally different.
I am sure I will get to the point where I breed my white geese but for now I am enjoying how cute they are. I am interested in breeding these white geese to see the weird colors but also for selecting ones that look simply like a Gray African goose and breeding these. That would mainly be for the looks such as the head shape and face. I was wondering if the blue eyes could be bred into my regularly colored African geese. I do believe that White Chinese geese are excellent layers. I have one goose that definitely has them in her bloodline and she is one of my best layers. I was planning on selling a few of my white geese when they are fully-feathered out but at the moment I do not see how that will come to be. I like them all. I am excited to see how they look when they are all grown up!
My bunch are all named. None of them to the naming system I have been recently using. My favorite of them all is Pompeia. There is a very round-headed goose named Buttercream. And the other three get confusing and I cannot always differentiate between them. The two bigger ones are Biscuit and Vanilla. Whipped Cream is one of the smallest of the batch along with Buttercream. I was thinking they would be rather small or at least built leaner than African goslings but no. They will probably continue to teach me things that I did not know about white Chinese geese. Maybe even about geese themselves.

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.
