African Geese originated from the wild swan goose of China. They are a noisier breed of geese than others and can be used as “watch dogs”. African geese are active foragers with good mothering instincts. They weigh between 12-16 lbs and lay around 35-45 eggs a year. They have a large knob on its forehead, and should be provided shelter so that it doesn’t become frostbitten.
African Geese are sold as day old goslings or juvenile/mature geese.
Goslings are sold straight run (unsexed). The minimum order for goslings being shipped is 4, this number can be made by combining any breeds of goslings or ducklings.
Hatch dates are on Tuesdays. Goslings ordered for pickup can be picked up between the Wednesday to Saturday following the hatch. We are not able to allow pickups on the actual hatch date. You will be emailed prior to the hatch to schedule a pickup appointment. An appointment must be made to ensure we will be available to help you.
