Emperor geese anyone?

We bought one goose from Amish country this summer and brought her home, shortly thereafter acquiring another from a farmer around here! They're loud but actually very tame and sweet. Anyone else have emperor geese? Gertrude and King

They used to have some at the breeding place I worked at. Very loud. They remind me of that one dinosaur.

100% Anti-Slaughter and PROUD of it!

Our neighbor has one. He kills ALL hatchlings and terrorizes the wild geese till they leave. I don't like him. Hopefully it is just him and not the norm for that breed.

They look very pretty. I personally have never really been a fan of waterfowl, but then again, most of the ones I've come into contact with are not very nice and/or tame, but I do love looking at them and admiring them from a distance. Are you planning on breeding them, or did you get two of the same gender?

They're my mom's, honestly, I hate them . Not planning on breeding, we know the one is a female because she laid eggs until my mom got the second one....then she stopped laying eggs and hasn't laid one since. Odd. We don't know if the second is a female or male, but I sincerely hope it's a female so we won't have any more stupid fowl running around, lol.
