Mmm, might have to look at getting a couple then. Goose fat is supposed to be the best to cook in. Yum.

I also breed and show Muscovy Ducks, They are supposed to be the least fat content of any duck breed. They taste really good.

If anyone is interested in buying any for either pets, exhibition or eating let me know.

Cheers Alyson

My Pilgrim goose has been sitting on eggs for a couple of weeks now - she gets very cross if you go near her but as she built her nest in the laneway at the side of the chook run instead the little house I had set up for her she has to put up with me going in to collect eggs, refill feeders etc. She has never chased me though. The funniest thing about them is that when mother goose leaves the nest for a quick drink and something to eat usually around 1pm - her mate honks loudly and she returns the honks until she returns to the nest - I can only imagine what they are saying to each other.

I also have brown chinese geese. They have a different quieter honk but are quite vocal at dinner time.

Both breeds are good watchdogs - they alert you when something or someone is around - I don't think they would be popular in built up areas but I love having them on our farm.

We have just bought Indian Runner Ducks and although they are not supposed to nest - my little duck appears to be following the lead of the geese because she has made herself a nest and her absence until feed time when the drake calls her leads me to thinking she is sitting on her eggs.....only time will tell......

I want geese for our dam - and one to eat occasionally - but our dogs wouldn't allow it! They will terrorise anything that lives on the dam.
